The Road to Financial Wellness is a campaign created by Phroogal. Phroogal is the best and simplest way to learn about money empowering a generation to make better financial decisions and live their dream lifestyle.
Phroogal was founded by Jason Vitug, a financial educator, lifestyle engineer and author with a vision to democratize financial knowledge.
Jason has championed financial literacy since 2009 and was honored in 2010 for his role in promoting financial literacy in the workplace by Theodore Daniels, founder of the Society for Financial Education and Professional Development and a one-time member of the President’s Council on Financial Literacy.
During his tenure at a Silicon Valley credit union, Jason traveled around the United States promoting financial wellness to over 10,000 employees in over 60 locations. In 2015, Jason and his team traveled 10,218 miles, hosted and participated 37 events in 30 days, and attended by over 8,000 people.
It has been Jason’s vision to help millions of people gain access to relevant and reliable financial information to make better informed decision. The Road to Financial Wellness is a local grassroots and social media experiment to break the social taboo about money and empower a generation to live their dream lifestyle through a better understanding of money.
