Money makes the world go ‘round, so why do so many of us struggle with it? From saving enough to understanding how to invest, money is often confusing and overwhelming.
But it shouldn’t be! Learning about money should be easy and FUN!


At EduCounting (Education + Accounting) we make it easy (and FREE!) to learn about money no matter how old you are.

Our short and simple videos and podcasts — for both parents and kids — cover almost every financial topic and break them down into a simple lesson and language that anyone can understand. From saving and investing to taxes, IRAs, mutual funds, stocks and more!



We believe there’s no shame in admitting what you don’t know and we want to make it easy for you to learn. Everything we create is with you, and your time, in mind. And every video or podcast offers an actionable step to get you on the path to financial knowledge and power.
This is what you needed to learn growing up but didn’t! The good news is that it’s never too late to learn and improve. By understanding, appreciating, and valuing money, we want to enable you to live the life you want. Let’s get EduCouting.
