Budgeting isn't about restriction, it's about freedom. The best way to avoid financial strain is to know where your money is going and plan ahead! One of the most effective tools for preventing a large- scale financial disaster is an emergency fund, an amount of money that is set aside to cover unexpected expenses, or to keep you afloat if no regular income is coming in. You need a budget to tell your money where to go, but making one can seem daunting. This Coach walks you step-by-step through the process of creating a budget that fits your lifestyle. Using the 50/30/20 rule, every dollar is assigned to needs, wants, or savings. Try these EAGLE’S NEW FINANCIAL EDUCATION SITE Hello my name is...
