The process usually takes 6 – 12 months. Individualized spending plan, cutting back may or may not be necessary depending on your particular goals and income
Q & A
Q: I am so embarrassed. What if I don’t even know where my money goes?
A: Great. It’s best to not wait until things are in order. This will allow me to analyze true behavior and create a plan to move forward that is more intentional for you and your family.
Q: If I have a variable income, how do I factor in my income?
A: Best case scenario is taking previous numbers and annualizing (diving by 12). Analyze this number to see if it is the most conservative amount moving forward (current reality vs. goals/dreams)… keep at most conservative amount. If you find more income in a particular period/month, upon doing monthly/bi monthly check in- you will need to immediately direct the funds where you want them to go. This all leads to intentional spending.
Q: I have an idea of my budget, but it’s not written down and it seems to work, would this service still be beneficial?
A: Wonderful! If you feel the service is not needed, no pressure at all. At worst, this can be a double check that you are in fact on the right track. At best, we can find expenses that you were not intentionally accounting for and help you direct a saving plan on where to put these.
