In today’s virtual times, many, I am sure,  would love to go to finance school, in their home? In their pajamas? On their time? 

More importantly, they probably want to go for FREE!. As a College Professor, I can attest that while ” remote learning” interest has blommosed, that flower starts to wilt badly, based on the price .

Can you learn Personal Finance on today’s financial news channel shows? Occasionally, you might see some personal finance ” how to segments” but based on their 24 hour coverage ,and non consistently, it’s fair to say you might learn 1 lesson a week, and for 5 minutes, and it might replay 2 or 3 times during that week. 

The New York Parrot has a better idea: Starting Friday February 12tth, 5PM. It’s called Financial Focus University.

While only a weekly 30 minute show, we are hoping to educate you on the tenats of Personal Financial Planning, while at the same time, update you on the financial and market news of the week. Our end result: To make you and your wallet fiscally healthy! 

Segment 1: Bidenomics

This segment is more to report the economic numbers of that week. Then to analyze how the government’s fiscal & monetary policies are both, following the President’s course– or not , and not withstanding, share with you,  real time analysis on how it effects your money. You hear the phases: inflation!. Unemployment? Labor costs? Etc. Now you can learn a lot more about them 

Segment2:  ” Personal Finance” how to

Maybe the best example of what we mean will be our first topic in this area: What is the dollar value of a ” tax deduction” vs a ” tax credit”?. Now while they are both valuable, with the new ” liberal” standard deduction, which one do you do? Do you take the standard deduction or Itemize? The answer: Tune in to find out. You might learn how to get between 40-60% in Tax Savings. 

Segment 3-Ask A Question

We believe this might be the most powerful segment. It is about answering financial questions regarding your concerns!. On Budgeting? Debt? Savings? Investing? Retirement? I’ll share  ” College Lecture secrets” with you but more importantly we hope to use this segment to directly help you with your financial problems.. We will flash a phone number or email and of course encourage you to call with your questions. 

As opposed to Cable TV shows like CNBC & Bloomberg, this one is internet & Facebook based. Just go to or the FB New York Parrot page, and we will be on, LIVE!. 

Or of course you can watch it at your schedule and at your convenience. We hope you enjoy the show. More importantly, be ” financial planning” educated. Or better yet, welcome back to school , Financial Focus University, starting this and every Friday at 5PM.
