Description

Are there things you want in life? How will you get those things unless you plan for, and work toward, them? (Spoiler alert: it isn't going to just magically happen.)

Budgeting can help you have a clear idea of how much money you make (even if it is an on-again/off-again gig), how you spend that money, and how much of that money you need to save toget where YOU want to go!  Goal-setting with a budget CAN get you there, so check out the tools and tips offered in this session.

Key Questions

I have a general idea of how much money I make; why do I need to go to the trouble of creating an actual budget?

I only have a part-time gig; do I still need to learn about budgeting?

Budgeting just sounds like telling yourself "NO!" all of the time... at what point does budgeting become "worth it?"

Do most people stick to a budget?

There are things I like to do with friends like going out to eat, or going to the movies.  Do I have to stop all that once I start budgeting?

Expected Outcomes

I hope that students will learn that having the lifestyle and opportunties that they want requires effort, and making smart decisions.

Nothing in life is free-  certainly not that $4.75 Venti Caramel Macchiato you get every morning!   BUT if you know where you want to go/ what you want to have budgeting can help you get there!

Don't think of it as restricting yourself, think of it as giving yourself the life you want! 

If you know about the tools that exist to help you make better decisions about your money, wouldn't it be crazy not to use them?!
