"FoolProof provides needed financial education that will impact the youth in our communities, the communities served by the credit unions of Tennessee.

FoolProof's New "Top 10" Story Hits Home. Literally.


What's one event virtually all young people really look forward to? Moving out!

What's one fear virtually all young people feel when they finally move away from home? Having to move back!

FoolProof's new "Top Ten Reasons You'll Have to Move Back In With Your Parents Before You Are Thirty" was just released as a story and a video, and immediately had a huge impact with the national media.

"Many young people live for the day when they move out on their own," said Will deHoo, 31, founder and CEO of FoolProof. "We don't think much about the future, and we enjoy our new freedom too much, burning money without thinking. We thought a fun video would be a good way to remind all young people how small money mistakes can have a big impact on your freedom, and where you live."

FoolProof also simultaneously released its new FoolProof "Solo" version of Burning Money—budgeting and savings skills for college-age young people. "The Burning Money series shows any young person how to keep his or her independence," deHoo said.

To date, YAHOO, CNBC, Financial columnist Liz Weston, CBS Money Watch, MSN Money, Bloomberg Radio, and Canada.com have done features on "Top Ten."

Know anyone under thirty? (Or have a kid you'd rather not see move back home?!) Why not watch the "Top Ten" video yourself, read our release, and then forward both to that person?
