In this webinar, Lou Abrams, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, will show you the steps to take to create a realistic budget that will help you take control of your money and give you peace of mind.

Have you ever felt like creating a budget is pointless because it’s too restrictive or doesn’t work for you?

We’ve all felt that way at one point or another, mostly because generic budgeting methods have failed all of us. The good news is that there’s a better way to budget and we’ll show you how.

In Budgeting 101, you’ll learn how to easily create a budget tailored to your money, while also prioritizing your goals and spending. We’ll cover:

  • Finding your reason for budgeting
  • Components of a budget (income, expenses, and money for goals and spending later)
  • Tracking your expenses so you never have to wonder where all of your money went
  • How to plan and pay for irregular expenses like birthdays, Christmas, unexpected medical bills, and car maintenance;
