For six 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 100 applications for the fourth annual ConneXfactor competition! Below is our update on Kayla P.
Kayla P.: The Bargain Whisperer
Coach: Sherry Costa, Orange Assistant Branch Manager
Kayla continues to make excellent progress towards meeting her goals in the ConneXfactor competition. It was a little challenging at first, but she is gradually becoming more acclimated to the changes she is making with her finances. This is mainly due to her great organization skills and exercising some creativity when it comes to minimizing expenses. Kayla is using coupons, phone apps and other resources to find bargains. The small amount she has already saved has encouraged her to continue saving! When you see the fruits of your labor materializing, it becomes a little easier to make those sacrifices needed to get the results you want. In this case, Kayla’s diligence in exploring ways to save is paying off and she is reaping the benefits.
Kayla is also making bi-weekly deposits into her special savings account, according to the schedule we set for her. She is thrilled to see her ConneXfactor savings account growing steadily. It’s important to have patience and commitment when working towards any goal, and Kayla is already seeing the positive effects to her finances because of these two qualities.
Kayla is well on her way to improving her financial future and I couldn’t be more excited for her!
