A healthy approach to budgeting and debt management will reduce a key stress point in many relationships.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Just in time for wedding season, ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions (CCCS) is launching a four-part series of webisodes focusing on love and money. The series, filmed on location in Seattle, WA, will combine humor and education as it follows Penny Pincher in her journey to find the right match for her “romantic and financial future”.
“It’s not about finding a wealthy mate, as much as it is about finding someone who knows how to live within their means”, said Allie Vered, the Vice President of Education, Marketing and Communications with ClearPoint. “In the long run, a healthy approach to budgeting and debt management will, at the very least, reduce a key stress point in many relationships.”
The National Survey of Families and Households revealed that arguments about credit card debt, budgeting, and other financial matters were the strongest predictor of divorce. Our main characters are all different in the way they approach spending, so will that help or harm the chances of a successful romantic connection?
Viewers of these webisodes will have a chance to win cash prizes in the first few weeks as each new video is released, and a grand prize for watching the entire series. These incentives, combined with the lessons of the videos, will encourage people to focus on savings and reaching their financial goals. The premier will be launched at the RepayDebt.org website on Tuesday, March 19th. New episodes will be added the following three Tuesdays.
ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions, a nonprofit organization, is a member of the NFCC and a system-wide accredited business with the Council of Better Business Bureaus and a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-approved housing counseling agency.
