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.: The Important Question to Ask
Coach: Michelle Panzo, Orange Branch Manager
It’s been a bit of a quiet month for Naixtza – and sometimes no news is good news! She is still focused on her competition goals and committed to staying on point. She completed her move to her new apartment recently, but some moving expenses were a little more than she anticipated. Sometimes it’s the little items that a place needs that can really make a big dent in the budget! The wedding Naixtza was in has passed, and she can breathe a sigh of relief because there were no unexpected expenses there. That was a big win!
Next on the agenda is her vacation, which is paid for but you never know what can happen. She is keeping her goals at the forefront of her mind, so she is consistently asking do I need or do I want that? This mentality helps her stay focused when she might be tempted to frivolously spend. Working a lot is also keep her busy, so she doesn’t have too much downtime to shop. She is learning more every week and these lessons will help her change to have a better financial future.
