Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County unveils financial video series

With the support of an Innovation Grant by Cornell Cooperative Extension Administration, Nancy Reigelsperger, CCE-Steuben Financial & Consumer Educator, and Carla Dawejko, CCE-Steuben Communications Coordinator, have unveiled an online financial instruction video series entitled the Pyramid Approach to Financial Health.

The series is designed to help people understand the basic building blocks of sound financial management and the steps you need to follow to build success.  The bottom rungs create a strong secure foundation for building financial stability and wealth accumulation – cash and credit management.  The top building blocks of home stability, estate and financial planning, and asset protection each rely upon the strength and stability of the personal finance strategies used in the blocks below them.

In creating the Online Pyramid Approach to Financial Health, CCE-Steuben collaborated with local partners:  Certified Financial Planner Amy Irvine of  Rooted Planning Group;  Elder Law Attorney Patrick Roth;  Nancy Williamson, CEO of ServU Credit Union and Pam Colomaio, Assistant Vice-President of Chemung Canal.

Our vision is that in today’s busy world, participants can view the videos at a time that is most convenient for them and can select the topics that are of most interest to them.  The videos provide a brief overview of the financial topics and do not replace the full financial workshops provided by Cornell Cooperative Extension.
