A few months back Dave was non-stop about entering this contest for SoFi. The contest was called “SoFi- Get Your Money Right- My Story.” Basically, you had to create a video clip of 60 seconds or less on how SoFi has helped you get your money right. The grand prize winner would get $50,000. So in normal Lisa fashion, I cut it down to the wire and on the last DAY of the contest, started getting my submission-ready.
I quickly whipped out my phone to create a video of how SoFi helped with some extra cash when I broke my leg by utilizing the referral bonuses to share the wealth with all of our friends and family. I submitted it on January 31st, 2020 and thought nothing else of it.
A few weeks went by and I got an email from SoFi, stating that they were going to use my video in upcoming marketing materials! I quickly call Dave to see if he had gotten a similar email. He did not. I was so excited to see what my material would be used for!
Dave & I are sitting in a hotel in West Palm Beach Florida, about to drive my car back up to Buffalo, NY for a few months since I am temporarily on unpaid leave from work due to the novel COVID-19. I start hearing on TV about a SoFi commercial so of course, Dave & I both stop and look up and suddenly- THERE I AM!
Then text messages from my friends started rolling in. At first, they were from Buffalo, but then I got a text from a friend living in JAPAN who saw me on TV! I did not think I would ever be in a commercial, let alone one that was international!
I honestly had NO idea what part of my video submission they were going to use, but I do have one thing to say- This Is Amazing. Check out my appearance below!
