This week I am taking a break from my Featured Bare Budgets to introduce my first video!
Though I’m trying to brush up on my web programming skills, I am no where near being dangerous. I had some really simple web styling edits I needed done, so I was looking on fiverr for someone who could do a quick $5 job. And of course I got distracted and ended up browsing through all of the crazy things people are willing to do for $5.
I started looking at some sample explainer videos and instantly decided that I wanted to make one for BareBudgetGuy.com. So I wrote a 30 second script in 10 minutes, found a freelancer from Nigeria whose style I liked, and I invited her to accept my job. Just a few days and one revision later, I have my first video!
Not bad for less than $30!

I’ve gotten some really positive feedback on what I’m doing with the budget profiles and with incorporating free financial advice. I thought I’d explore some new avenues such as video to continue to build my audience.
Now I’m off to Las Vegas in a few days for work. Home sweet home! It just happens to coincide my dad’s retirement party, which is perfect. I’m sure I’ll have have some new thoughts on retirement by the time I get back, and I’ll be sure to share.
