Family Budgeting 101

Date: Wednesday, April 6, 2022
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

This webinar is not about numbers.  Most people can do the math around a budget and come up with 1+1=2.  Unless you don’t understand your relationship with money, then often you will find that 1+1= -3 (if you have problems with math there are calculators and friends who can help). This webinar focuses on understanding your relationship with money, finding the problems with that relationship and working to fix them.

Do you ever wonder why you run out of money before the month is over?  You know how much you make, how much you spend, yet the money never seems to last as long as you think it should.  You have a budget of sorts, but do you track your expenses?  If not then you don’t have a budget, you have a wish list, and wishing doesn’t help pay the bills. It may be time to look at your relationship with money.  Yes, you have one.  Like all relationships there are good parts and not so good parts.  Come to our Budgeting 101 webinar and learn how to examine your patterns of behaviour around money and how to get  back in control of your finances.
