Money Smart Guy Matthew Sapaula to Serve as Chicago Financial Coach on MSN Money Personal Finance Reality Show
Big news everyone! I’ve been so excited to share this with you for months, but I have been under “embargo”. (A new PR word I learned that means: shut your mouth until the people who write the big checks, let you).
Throughout the summer, I have been in production filming a new online reality show around the areas of personal finance, saving and investing. Oh mang! I have signed on for three seasons for The Invested Life which airs online at MSN Money beginning October 2010 to June 2011, sponsored by TD Ameritrade. They have taken seven independent financial experts from seven cities: Denver, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Portland, New York and of course, Chicago! Our role is to serve as a financial coach to a client assigned to us during each season. You’ll be able to watch and learn from both perspectives, a financial coach and a client, how the process of dealing with personal financial issues are managed.
Why an online reality show about money? It’s a unique way to reach and help investors when they need it the most. Many people feel financially confused, isolated and somewhat powerless. This will help more people take control of their financial futures. It is relatable, educational, innovative and real time!
