For the next five months, Connex Credit Union will be working closely with five participants to see who can become the most fiscally fit to win a $3,000 grand prize. Each participant has been paired with a Connex Financial Advocate who will offer real-world, practical advice on how to reduce debt, build savings, and many other helpful financial tips and advice. Connex received over 140 applications for the second annual ConneXfactor competition! Below is our fourth update on Nick M.

Nick M.: Making Lifetime Financial Changes

Coach: Michelle Panzo, Orange Assistant Branch Manager

Nick had a quiet month in August as far as no major obstacles to overcome, which he was thankful for.  He has come a long way these past few months. His thought process about finances has completely changed.  He has learned not to buy on a whim, think twice before making a purchase, and can now better distinguish whether a purchase needs to be made quickly with funds on hand or can be obtained later down the road after saving for it.nick m

Nick has made great strides with his competition goals! He has paid off two credits cards and built up an emergency savings. Nick was so proud of himself that he showed his mother what he has accomplished, and now she would like to set up a budget!  She sees how the process has been working for Nick and wants to learn how to get her finances in order as well.

Nick has made changes that will last a lifetime.  He is confident that the ConneXfactor challenge has changed his financial life, and so am I.

With fortitude and having the right attitude, anything is possible.  Nick is a great example of that. – Michelle Panzo, Orange Assistant Branch Manager
