Zebit Challenge Day 7: Financial Wellness Feels So Good!

I made it! Well, almost. Today’s the last day on my Zebit challenge and I feel pumped. I’m not going to lie, I am going to splurge on a decaf latte tomorrow. But, I have really been reminded about how much money I waste on the little indulgences. I will definitely be mindful of my spending and be using my new mantra, “When I save, I win,” to fight the urge to purchase unnecessary items.

I’m Not Stopping Now…And Neither Should You!

When you start to feel smarter about budgeting and get a good sense of your smartest financing options for large or unexpected purchases, it inspires you to keep going. That’s why I’m excited to take some time to review some of the incredible free financial wellness tools offered by Zebit. If your employer offers Zebit as an employee benefit, you, the employee, can visit their site and sign up for free. Once inside, you’ll find 15 modules designed to help you get smarter on all sorts of financial topics. If your employer has not implemented Zebit in your organization yet, you can still take a personalized financial self-assessment and download the Zebit Instant Budget App for free. It is 100% FREE for employers to adopt Zebit. Get bonus points if you introduce Zebit to your employer. Your coworkers will be grateful to the person that brings this benefit to the company. So, why shouldn’t you be their hero?! With two children, I’m going to be checking out the modules on saving for college. But, I’m also excited to learn about savings and investments too.

Financial Wellness Is Like Going To The Gym.

What I’ve realized about financial wellness is the more consistently you educate yourself, the stronger you get. Just like going to the gym. I make the time to go because I care about my health. I don’t see it as something I have to do, but as something I want to do. This Zebit challenge has changed me from dreading financial education to embracing it. Feeling good about my ability to budget properly and manage my finances effectively is something I want to keep feeling.

Your Last Challenge!

Alright, I said it earlier, but am feeling the love for Zebit after all the financial clarity I’ve received from this challenge in a short 7 day time period. My last and final challenge to you is to ask your employer’s HR or Benefits department to offer Zebit to its employees! It is free to your employer and free to you. You will have access to Zebit’s free financial wellness tools to keep your own education going, be granted a ZebitLine without a credit check, and will have access to the Zebit Market to make a purchase and pay over time without paying any interest or fees. Zebit’s whole program makes that $7 go a lot farther and helps reduce stress during unexpected and expensive events. If seven days can help us look differently at our finances and motivate us to want to do better, imagine what will happen when you commit to making financial education a habit. Financial freedom will be your reward!

It’s Been Fun - Let’s Stay In Touch!

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.
