Lisa Marie Celebrates One Year, One Very Important Journey Thanks to ELGA Credit Union
Have you ever headed out on a vacation or a road trip journey somewhere? When you’re finally home you sit back and reflect on where you went, what you experienced, and the memories you took away.
Over the past year I set out on my own journey of sorts. Although I didn’t travel anywhere, I had a chance to experience, learn and take away some valuable information. I was on a financial journey. A financial fitness journey thanks to ELGA Credit Union, and what I took away is truly life-changing.
Now trust me when I say, I didn’t end up a millionaire, although that would have been nice! What I did was walk away with a new way of living. From budgeting to planning and (of course) saving, I’ve spent a year learning a new way to live.
When you actually stop and take a look at your financial situation and your spending habits it can really be a real eye-opener. Thanks to my Financial Fitness Classes and the team at ELGA, I made changes that will last me a lifetime and put me in the position I really wanted to be financially at this stage in my life.
No longer do I live paycheck to paycheck, or dread a moment that comes along unexpectedly, like auto repairs or unplanned medical expenses. I’ve been able to take special trips with my children and do a little extra for my family. For myself, I have been able to feel good about where I am at this stage of the game and feel secure in being prepared for the future.
