Phroogal's fearless leader Jason Vitug is one our era's true entrepreneurs who enjoys pushing the proverbial envelope physically and mentally. You may recall we had Jason on last year when he announced his "Road to Financial Wellness" tour, which essentially consisted of a nationwide 30-stops-in-30-days road trip spreading the good word of credit unions and sound financial wellness practices.
The trip and experience were such a success (more than 10 million Twitter impressions, 100,000+ Facebook engagements, etc.) that Jason is upping the ante this summer with a bigger, better, and more epic nationwide adventure: another "Road to Financial Wellness" tour. This time Jason and his credit union road warrior crew will conduct 50 events in 50 states this summer.
Jason will take lessons he learned from his first expedition and apply them to this trip for a better, more enriching experience and impactful experience that will really make the credit union and financial wellness message stick -- and spread. The 2016 Road to Financial Wellness tour commences June 1 and ends in September in my home town of San Diego, where we will have a "live" report on this year's cross-country tour.
