I can imagine that most of us have a debt to pay off; a mortgage, a car, a college loan or a credit card. Without a doubt it is a difficult topic to confront. If you can relate, I invite you to check out Capital One’s newest Financial Superpower experience on April 28 (National Superhero Day) at their Cafés in Miracle Mile and Del Ray.
Using the imaginative and conversational style of traditional comics, the Financial Superpower experience is a four-paged comic of high-tech posters, developed by industry veteran illustrators. The experience asks people a series of fun questions based on their own money habits. The first comic poster asks about financial superheroes; which character you most relate to when it comes to money. You could be The Balanced Optimist, who is effortlessly saving for the future or The Flexer, who has unlimited financial flexibility. Then, the second poster asks about your financial villain such as the Impulsinator, an impulse buyer extraordinaire or, perhaps, Blissful Ignorance, making you armed with all the proverbial financial unknowns. Once selected, individuals are then asked to select their current financial battle - like paying bills or paying off debt - and finally, the last poster asks about your current quest, like getting married, retiring or travel.
- Poster 1: Invites you to select a superhero that best represents your financial strength
- Poster 2: Invites you to select a villain that symbolizes the anxiety caused by financial difficulties
- Poster 3: Makes you think about a mercantile battle, for example: a current credit card debt
- Poster 4: Asks you what objective you currently have, for example: Are you saving up for a new house?
The ultimate goal is to confront a topic that we all avoid but should not. This experience allows you to use a variety of superheroes to help you create your own financial path in a casual way.
By the way, if you don’t know about Capital One Café’s facilities, you will be surprised with their innovative concept of banking.
The Financial Superpower experience will be available at select Capital One Cafes throughout the nation through the end of June. Because thinking and talking about money can be stressful, Capital One Cafés provide a relaxed environment centered around solving visitor’s financial problems and helping them reach their money goals.
At the Capital One Cafés, visitors can get help with their financial battles and quests through free services like Money Coaching, which is a three-part program delivered in-person and designed to connect your values to your money, plan your path for future goals and help you give you the confidence to get there. At the Cafés you can also partake in free Money Workshops, a series of seminars themed around important life moments such as “Talk Money with Your Honey” or “Moving on up in Work and in Life”.
