Lisa’s luck

Business at Lisa’s salon has been slow lately, probably due to the recession, so she asked her credit union if she could refinance her auto loan, which was killing her.  The interest rate there was 5+%.  They told her no, she would have to pay off the loan, instead.  So, she checked with a different credit union and learned their interest rate was 3+%.  Much better!  After signing up for a new loan to pay off the first loan, Lisa is a happy camper, now.

Last night, she told me that UH-Hilo is developing a physical therapy degree program.  She hopes to apply for admission when she graduates from UH-Manoa with a BS in kinesiology.  Since it is a state college and she is a resident, tuition will be less expensive than on the mainland.

Things seem to be falling into place for our daughter!  Wheee!

    Kavita, thanks for the good thoughts. Lisa doesn’t run the salon; she is one of the hairstylists there.

    It’s such a great feeling when things work out for our kids, isn’t it? Good going, Lisa! She sounds like a very capable young woman. The fact that she’s so good looking is just the frosting.

    Hooray for successful kids! Have Lisa check out another school’s Physical Therapy program, and see what pre-requisite classes may be available to take now (or soon), while the PT program is being planned, organized and certified. Baby steps to get to the goals!
