Only through talking about money can we become more cognizant of it. I am incredibly honored to have been distinguished by my peers as the best in personal finance video content this year.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
L Bee and the Money Tree, a popular personal finance blog, announced today that the blog's web series, "Awkward Money Chat", has been named the Best Video/Multimedia production for Personal Finance at the 5th Annual Plutus Awards. The Plutus Awards is an annual awards show designed to honor the best in personal finance media.
In February 2014, Lauren Bowling, author of L Bee and the Money Tree, debuted the first season of "Awkward Money Chat," an interview format show where guests discuss with Bowling the most intimate details of their personal finances. “Only through talking about money can we become more cognizant of it," Bowling said. "Although talking about money makes most people feel incredibly uncomfortable. I decided to put it all out there; play up the awkwardness to make the show both funny and entertaining, but still provide an education as well."
The first season featured a variety of guests from different walks of life: from a newlywed discussing her $5,000 dollar wedding, to the brave guest who revealed she paid off $30,000 in credit card debt through a debt consolidation program. "I'm proud of the final product: a web series that offers viewers twelve distinct money journeys and an in-depth look into how "real people" are handling their finances," Bowling continued. "I am incredibly honored to have been distinguished by my peers as the best in personal finance video content this year.”
The entire first season of Awkward Money Chat is available for viewing on the L Bee and the Money Tree YouTube channel. Fans can also connect with the series by using the hashtag #awkwardmoneychat.
Bowling was honored at the Plutus Awards ceremony on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at The New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, La. The Plutus Awards was the closing night event for FinCon 2014, a peer conference for the financial media community.
