BVC #1 – Filter Personal Finance Experts [VIDEO]

I spent the last week out in San Francisco and couldn’t sleep the other night so I thought I would, in my sleepy yet unable to sleep haze, put up a video blog post to kick off the Bargaineering VideoCast (BVC) series. This one will talk about how you should always take what personal finance experts say with a grain of salt. Whether it’s an advisor or some talking head, the adage still holds true. If you don’t follow it, then you deserve everything you get.

Word of warning, the camera does have a little bit of shake (I’m holding it) and I’m new at this so I hope to improve it. Please don’t get sick! 🙂

Here’s the Wikipedia page for Suze Orman, ranked [3] number 1 by Google (through some fine SEO I’m sure!) for personal finance expert [4]. I have nothing against Suze Orman (unlike James Scurlock [5]), I merely pointed her out because she’s one of the hot names in personal finance right now. At times I think her abrasive attitude is a bit over the top (but for some, it’s absolutely necessary) but that’s hardly a fault.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this little experiment, on what I have to say, on pretty much everything!
