I Want to CU Happy Tour 2023
I’m embarking on another ambitious project to spread happiness in 2023. My goal is to collaborate with 100 credit unions (2 in each state) on an epic, bold, and visionary attempt to bring more joy and happiness in people’s lives.
We're looking for the happiest 100 Credit Unions
Hi, I'm Jason
I’m a former credit union executive who continues to promote and champion the credit union movement.
I’m the founder of personal finance website, phroogal.com. creator of the award-winning Road to Financial Wellness Project, TEDx speaker, and bestselling NYTimes reviewed author. I’m also a certified yoga teacher and breathwork specialist.
For years, I’ve wondered about how we can bring more joy and happiness into our lives. I believe I found the secrets and I’m sharing it in my second book, Happy Money Happy Life.
What will happen?
I want to visit your credit union and the local communities you serve and share the financial messiness and successes that have led to a healthier, wealthier, and happier life. I’m not holding back in the pains and joys that have led to some of the biggest failures and accomplishments.
This is an opportunity for a wellness discussion we all know is needed, and I am your willing and capable facilitator to make it happen with humor, empathy, and resourcefulness.
I can’t do this without your help. And I want your credit union to be part of history.
This CU happiness tour is part of my book outreach. I want to spread the word about Happy Money Happy Life: A Multidimensional Approach to Health, Wealth, and Financial Freedom.

What's in the book?
YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY
You need to be good with money to have a happy life in this world. That doesn’t mean you need to earn the most, have the most, or even be a millionaire (although I will share how to do just that). This book approaches money as your tool; as such, you’ll need to learn what it is, how to handle it, and where to use it to achieve your goals.
Happy Life Dimensions
In this section, you’ll learn about the eight happy dimensions. You’ll understand the interconnectedness and how money affects each dimension.
