About Regret Nothing
We want to get folks talking about money and more, from savings, superannuation and debt to workplace etiquette and job seeking ideas. We're raising awareness about the importance of smart money management, through money tips, videos, blogs, Twitter and Facebook. Regret Nothing is about getting ahead, not getting ripped off, and making good decisions today, to enjoy big pay-offs in the future.
Regret Nothing is a financial engagement program - an initiative that looks to help young Australians make smart decisions with their money and get ahead in life. Our focus is on talking to you (not at you), opening up a conversation about finance, and most importantly, making the whole thing interesting.
The program is sponsored by Encompass Credit Union, a Sydney-based retail banking organisation.
Background to the Regret Nothing program
When Encompass Credit Union started in 1953, it was often difficult for people to get finance, for instance for a car or even just for standard consumer items. However, these days, with so much credit widely available, it seems almost too easy to get credit.
If a person is young, borrowing money can be useful to help juggle the financial pressures of study, work and a busy social life. But borrowing too much money can lead to real trouble. And debt and money problems can often lead to stress and isolation, especially for young people.
But as well as talking about debt and borrowing, we're looking to have a conversation about any and all personal finance issues - from budgeting to superannuation to finding and starting a job.
Last year, we asked the public to help us choose a spokesperson for our program, with Tom Shearman winning the role from a group of very talented applicants.
We would be happy to discuss the program with any parties interested in the same issues. Please contact us.
