If you want to be in a different place with money than you are today, you have to think and act differently.” – Dave Ramsey

I absolutely love that quote. It’s simple yet, it requires a lot of thought and most importantly action.

Hi, I’m Tanya Verzoni, Director of Financial Education at New Dimensions Federal Credit Union. I get the pleasure of working with our local students in classroom settings helping them learn things like budgeting, balancing a checkbook, how to save money, how to buy their first car, and how to understand credit. Likewise, I help credit union members with the same topics and other things like how to buy a home, repair their credit and save for their future. It’s really an awesome deal – I get paid to help people realize their dreams!

I’m a “townie,” born and raised in central Maine. I’ve lived most of my life here except for a short-time away in North Carolina while my husband was in the Army. I am the proud Mama of two four-legged kids, Kalley (shelter pup) and Lady (rescue pup from Alabama). They are both black Labrador retrievers that are brilliant and gorgeous – hey, a mother can brag, right? I love to cook for my family (I’ll sneak some recipes in my blog occasionally), shop (wisely), and I really like making wine – rose is my favorite variety!

So, welcome to my blog “Tanya’s Tips.” This is a place where you can visit and get money saving tips, ideas, and articles that are intended to improve your financial well-being. I have made my own mistakes with money (haven’t we all?) and have learned a few things that I hope will help you, too. I would like this blog to be interactive so, please send me your questions, ideas, and feedback (take it easy on me, this is my first blog! Haha!) and most importantly; suggestions on topics you’d like to know more about.

Make it a great day – 😊
