Janet Colandrea is our 2014 ConneXfactor Grand Prize Winner! Janet worked diligently over the course of six months to lower her debt and increase her savings, with three specific goals in mind. Here is a reminder of what she set out to accomplish, and the final results.
- Credit Card Debt Reduction
- RESULT: Janet reached 199% of her credit card payment goal
- RESULT: Janet reached 114% of her savings goal
- Open an Education Fund Savings account for son Josh
- RESULT: 388% of her goal was achieved
Janet’s ultimate goal though? To save for her first home. Her hard work over the last few months has paid off (literally!), as she will be tentatively closing on a home soon.
Janet’s son, Josh, even got in on the challenge by creating his own goal: Open a Connex savings account and save $120 during the competition. Like his mother, he more than exceeded his own goal!
To find out how Janet was able to achieve her goals of becoming fiscally fit, watch her video below. Be inspired by her road to financial freedom, and the steps she took to get there.
