Graduating from college and transitioning into the world-of-work can be filled with both excitement and fear. Among the “adulting” skills needed to survive life after college is, first and foremost, a budget.
A budget can be helpful…
- During Salary Negotiation: In order to negotiate effectively you will need to know how much money you need to live.
- While Keeping Track of Where Your Money is Going: Without a way to plan and track income and expenses you may never be able to achieve your financial goals.
- For Saving up for Big Purchase: Being able to sock away extra income in an intentional manner helps you plan for big purchases such as a car, travel, or your first home.
- To help you Pay Down any Debt: Being debt free opens so many doors. Making more than the minimum payments on debt can save you time and money.
