FNBO Direct Pay Yourself First Challenge Update: I Need Your Votes!

It's been a while since I've updated you guys on the FNBO Direct Pay Yourself First Challenge. If you’re a new reader, check out my post on getting into the top 5, as well as my video entry, for more info.

Just so ya know, the contest is still going on, and doesn't end until April. I've updated my blog page recently. So if you haven't checked it out in a while I encourage you to do so.

Anyway, I'm currently in 3rd place, and I've reached 100% of my savings goal. That means we've saved up enough for the expenses related to our baby girl. It's a good thing too. We're due in just a few weeks.

So, the only thing holding me back is votes from the American Public. I know you guys have been pouring in the votes for me, and I thank you for that. Votes, among other things, will help me win the grand prize.

Click This to Cast Your Vote for Phil!

How to vote: If you think I'm the best challenger (and I know you do) and if want to cast your vote for me, please visit my blog at http://pyfchallenge.com/meet_phil and click the vote for Phil button (like the one pictured above).

You can vote every day. Throughout the remainder of the challenge I'll have the vote for Phil button in the sidebar of this blog, as well as in the RSS feed and daily update emails. If you see it and have an extra second to spare, I'd appreciate the vote.

Lastly, if there's anything more you'd like me to share on my pyf challenge blog let me know.
