It’s Hard to Have Honest Conversations About Money.
Launching today, STACK Sessions will change that.
TORONTO, JUNE 4, 2018 - Canadians can now say hello to www.STACKSessions.com - a new home for financial entertainment, from the people at STACK - built to create real conversations with real people around money and how we manage it, featuring some of Canada’s favourite faces.
Money stress and a lack of financial education is a major source of dissatisfaction among Canadians, and the latest Financial Stress Survey from the Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC)* shows that 41% of Canadians rank money as their greatest stress, and 51% of Canadians are embarrassed about lacking control over their finances. Regardless of age, gender or bank balance, people are embarrassed, anxious or unable to talk about money in proactive and positive ways. STACK Sessions is taking on money matters through a series of helpful, humourous and honest conversations to relieve stress, boost confidence and help people feel friendlier about their relationship with money.
Introducing #STACKSessions, a place for open, honest conversations around money and how we manage it.
Now streaming: @fredvanvleet on the silliest $700 he’s ever spent, and how he plans to sustain his future on his current income.
STACK Sessions kicks off this month with STACK Shorts - a videos series of candid conversations featuring NBA point guard Fred VanVleet and supermodel and super-entrepreneur Coco Rocha.
