Communicating via events and the social networking media, MyLifeMyMoney provides relevant products to give Gen Y'ers (18 - 30 year olds) the necessary tools (first time home and auto loans, custom accounts, online banking, special loans with lower rates, higher interest rates, etc.) and education to better manage their money. MyLifeMyMoney allows Gen Y'ers to "call the shots" when it comes to their money thus allowing them to meet their life goals: "It's your life, you make the call!"

"Most of today's younger generation don't yet appreciate the value of a credit union, over banks" said Andrew Szabo, the Chief Marketing Officer for Resource One.

"Resource One is member-owned, not-for-profit serving the people who work, play or study in Dallas and NW Harris counties, MyLifeMyMoney will now bring the benefits of a credit union with better interest rates and the other relevant services to a whole new generation" added Szabo.

On Friday, August 15th, Resource One Credit Union will launch its' MyLifeMyMoney spokesperson contest, eligible to Dallas or Northwest Harris (Houston) residents between the ages of 18 and 30.

"The winning applicant in the search for the MyLifeMyMoney spokesperson will be the face of Resource One to their peers by doing things they probably already are doing: blogging, making YouTube videos, attending events and creating buzz about things they believe in," continued Brisendine.
