New It's a Money Thing Video: Credit Score Breakdown

Our second It's a Money Thing video is complete and ready for our subscribers. Jen meets Credit Squirrel and learns about credit scores and why they are important. It's fast-paced and filled with educational tidbits. I'm very proud of this piece and it really sets the tone of what you can expect from our content packs going forward.

Larissa Walkiw joins Currency!

I am excited to announce that Larissa Walkiw has joined Currency as a full-time graphic designer and illustrator. You may remember Larissa as our very first Young & Free Alberta Spokester and the creator of the original Difference Between Banks and Credit Unions video series way back in 2008.

I'll See You This Spring, Right?

It's been nearly four months since my last conference and I am starting to get the shakes! Actually, it's been awesome to have an extended period without travel. All things must come to an end though, as Spring is in the air and so is the busy travel season.

    Congrats to Amanda Brenneman, CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec for 2013

    It's been a week since our whirlwind trip to San Diego for the finals of the 4th annual CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec competition. Each year, we build on the last, making the program tighter and more compelling. I am very proud of this competition and our association with CUES. I feel like we've had a real impact on the industry and the lives of our finalists and winners, plus we've had a ton of fun along the way. What more could you ask for?

    CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec: Watch Live and Vote

After the presentations, the judges will submit their completed score sheets and conference attendees will vote for their favorite Finalist on the spot.

    The Great Credit Race Is On

    I've been working with a Filene i3 team on a project we've called the Great Credit Race. I jumped on board to help with the concept and all of the design and web development work because the topic is near and dear to my heart—helping young people establish credit. There's no shortage of information, advice and tools out there to help you improve your credit score, but there is virtually nothing to help you establish credit quickly and effectively.
