End: May 26, 2020 , 1:00 PM
Learn the six steps to budgeting to help you take control of your finances and gain peace of mind.
Budgeting has a reputation as something that is restrictive, boring, and doesn’t work. But a budget is simply a plan for your money based on your priorities and goals.
Most of us weren’t born knowing how to intuitively manage our money, our parents likely didn’t discuss money let alone teach us, and it wasn’t part of the curriculum when we were in school, so we learn by the school of hard knocks.
Here’s the good news: Budgeting is a skill set that anyone can learn.
You will learn to:
- Set SMART financial goals
- Understand the components of a budget
- Track your expenses and identify areas of change
- Plan and pay for irregular expenses
- Create and manage savings for goals like emergency savings and fun things
- Develop a paycheque plan
