50 Pit Stops Across the Country During the Summer to Educate Millennials on How to Manage Their Money and Live Their Dream Lifestyle in this Lifetime

Phroogal's The Road to Financial Wellness Road Map

Knowledge is power, but financial knowledge is life changing.

Phroogal, a financial education startup that empowers millennials to make better informed financial decisions, is hitting the road to get people talking about money and life goals. The Road to Financial Wellness tour will kick off in Elizabeth, NJ on June 7, 2016 and wrap up in San Diego on September 21. The epic 15,000 mile road trip will take the Phroogal team on a zig-zag across the country to visit 50 cities during the summer months.

The team will make stops in 50 cities along the way, spending the day speaking with local residents and millennials about their financial stories and will host events such as financial education seminars, workshops, coffeehouse discussions and impromptu street level interviews. Phroogal will hold events at various locations around the country taking place in coworking spaces, libraries and community centers, colleges, bars and restaurants, and other unique venues.

“Knowledge is power but more specifically financial knowledge is life changing. Financial knowledge empowers people to achieve their goals and live their dream lifestyle,” says Jason Vitug, CEO and founder of Phroogal. “We’re back on the road to educate and inspire a generation through a conversation about money, and motivate them into action with the right set of information and tools.”

The Road to Financial Wellness is a grassroots and social campaign to empower a generation to live their dream lifestyle through financial knowledge. It’s mission is to break the social taboo about money and turn local money discussions into a national conversation on financial well-being. Phroogal’s financial wellness events will connect local residents to social and local influencers, financial educators and experts.

"We are proud to be a national sponsor of the Road to Financial Wellness," says Doria Lavagnino, co-founder and president of CentSai, a new financial wellness community for millennials, based in Brooklyn, NY. "We also believe in the power of personal connections to help people manage their money." "Jason's grassroots efforts resonate with thousands of CentSai users who are seeking a better financial future," she adds.

The events will vary from one location to another, but each event will include inspirational stories from local residents, entrepreneurs and social influencers, discussions about money mindsets, and available financial resources, and include panel discussions and fireside chats. Jason Vitug will headline the events sharing his personal financial story and elements from his new book, You Only Live Once: The Roadmap to Financial Wellness and a Purposeful Life (released on June 7, 2016, Wiley).

Attendees will have the opportunity to network, connect with experts, and engage with Jason Vitug and the Phroogal team.
