“Our entire future has a brighter outlook,” said Rachel Seltzner, winner of the prize with her husband Brian Meixner, the self-proclaimed Budgeteers. “Because of our focused budget, we’ll soon have all of our debt paid off. We can now be more at ease with our finances and enjoy life.”
Since the program’s kick off in June 2010, four teams worked with Summit financial coaches to develop goals and a budget to better their financial situations. The four participants boosted their savings by $13,169 and decreased their debt by $40,787.
