(Part 1 above / Part 2 below) One of 2015's more inspirational stories so far: former CU exec Jason Vitug, founder of Phroogal, a millennial lifestyle brand focused on financial knowledge and access, is about embark on an epic, nationwide journey to spread the word on financial wellness -- especially to the ever elusive Millennial crowd.
Phroogal's Road to Financial Wellness, as Jason describes, is a local grassroots and social media initiative to turn local money discussions into a national conversation on financial wellbeing. It is already supported by credit unions and industry associations, but he is always looking for more partners.
According to Jason, his mission/adventure is an unprecedented attempt to participate in 30 events in 30 locations in 30 days (June 1-30) with a goal of recording, curating, and sharing real money conversations to inspire others in taking control of their financial lives and live their dreams.
So enjoy this discussion and step up to support this epic adventure Jason and his crew are about to experience -- while helping spread the word about credit unions to boot.
