2013: The Year of Financial Fitness

In 2013, our goal at St. Cloud Federal Credit Union is to educate, support, and encourage our Members to be financially fit.  But what exactly is Financial Fitness, you might ask?  Allow us to explain…

Financial Fitness isn’t a whole lot different that physical fitness, really.  For starters, they are both important to your personal well-being and security.  Instead of building muscle and physical stamina, financial fitness allows you to build finances – which can help your money be more efficient.  Like being in shape, financial fitness can help you handle various challenges and unexpected situations that may arise, and allow you to respond without excess worry.  Acting with a financially fit mindset involves sharpening your money management and planning skills.

Like ‘fitness’ in other areas of life (physical, emotional, etc.) financial fitness is the practice of making healthy, beneficial choices that create better financial situations for you. Just as losing weight is often easier said than done, financial fitness requires conscious thinking and commitment; likewise, it will be worth it in the end!  Working together to achieve financial fitness can build a better, stronger, healthier life for you, your family, and the economy. And to help, we’re here for our Members every step of the way to provide education, support, and encouragement; we are People Helping People.  

With Financial Fitness on the brain, we’re excited about providing tips, tricks, and helpful hints through a variety of mediums –find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, or LinkedIn.
