Why We really like YouTube and How We use it!

In no way are we compensated by YouTube…. but we sure do use it… even as Financial Planning Nerds…with some personal examples here too!

Why we love YouTube and How we use it!

Our Channel

As a regular video poster here at our blog on Street-cents.com – we have a YouTube Channel where we post all of our videos- for the record we do not embed them in our posts due to the advertisements that occur after the video is watched….


What we really like about YouTube is the ability to subscribe to various channels…. Yes, mine is packed with very specific individuals that have garnered trust over the years, such as mentioned here Peter Zeihan, but also a stay updated men’s clothing personality, as well as a Drone person, marketing specialist, and even a few local fishing personalities…

How To Instructions on Anything

The first time YouTube instructions saves you a ton of angst, time and money, you will gravitate to it for ANY fixit troubles you may have… From screen broadcasting in the office, to capping unused sprinklers at the house… to even how to roll tamales was on during our remote working time.

Live Web Cams and 4k Videos

Anyone in the office long enough will spot a Live Webcam somewhere…usually of either the beach or the mountains (tranquility and calm) but sometimes just of up beat music with a backdrop of videos flying over various scenic terrane – great live painting like wall screens!

Feels Good too

Many of these people are making their living with our eyes watching, listening, and learning from their videos and channels…. What an easy and great way to give back!

A Few Personal Coping Techniques … Friday

As we work through week three of our lock down, we know MANY of you have a much longer time frame and are in much more confined areas….

Hang tight, we will get through this!

Personal Coping Techniques 

My hope is that, maybe just maybe, one of these may work well for you… so here we go!

One of my absolute favorite ideas is so simple and fun, hopefully you will think so too!

Ideally, find a way to get YouTube on a big screen… ROKU, Firestick or any smart TV will get you there… 

Now  – Search Live Web Cam there are a ton… find a place you like to go or have gone in the past or want to go … turn it on and leave it on as a subtle fun distraction!

Here are three streaming Live Web Camera family favorites:

Here are a few VERY personal tips I am trying to adhere:

  • Get plenty of sleep, maybe even more than usual
  • Get outside if at all possible
  • Wear very bright clothes – ditching a person fav black – the positive color seeps into your mood
  • Make sure to take daily vitamins
  • Spend time with the family and have a few laughs – Oddly purple dye found its way into the 12 year old’s shampoo bottle, no idea how … haha
  • Listen to upbeat music, not downer sad stuff, no sad love songs, fun dance or the like
  • Spend a little extra time with the pets – they appreciate it and it will help you too
  • No dark movies – Jim Carey..Mel Brooks …Disney + (just signed up for Disney+ – worth the $5/month)
  • Do not take in too much news or social media and make sure to throttle negativity, be Informed but not consumed
  • Exercise- push ups, old bar bell weights from the Garage are working well, sit ups, lunges and stretches
  • If you are really having trouble with something, write it down – just the act of putting it on paper/text is soothing…. trust me on this one !


Golfers – this is from our local club, Pick your sport, I am sure there are others…  

Ahhh… today is a Friday, heading into a weekend … have a great weekend and hope this has helped and maybe stirred some ideas of your own…feel free to share in the comments!

Have a Great “Personal Coping Techniques” Day!
