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 fifth annual ConneXfactor competition! Below is our update on Naixtza R.
Naixtza R.: Beating Wallet Drain
Coach: Michelle Panzo, Orange Branch Manager
We are already a month into the ConneXfactor challenge, if you can believe it. Naixtza has started saving, but she is coming into a month that could be expensive for her. She is moving, is in a wedding and has a vacation coming up – activities and events that can easily drain your wallet if you’re not careful! The good thing is that all were planned long before Naixtza entered the competition.
We have our work cut out for us. Luckily the move won’t need a security deposit, her bridesmaid’s dress is paid for and so is most of the vacation. But as we all know, there are always last minute expenses that pop up and that is what we planning for this week. This is where the stress can become overwhelming for many people, but the difference now this time is she has my support as a coach to help her wade through the financial muddy waters. Together we can decide what is a need and what is really a want, with the goal being to help her not overspend. Naixtza will succeed in this competition and I am confident in her determination make big changes in her financial life.
