Make Every Cent Count
Zero Based Budget
Many of our clients struggle with how to manage their money. So let’s help them create a plan for EVERY cent. Zero-based budgeting is a way of budgeting where your income minus your expenses equals zero. With a zero-based budget, you have to make sure your expenses match your income during the month. That way you’re giving every dollar that’s coming in a job to do. It’s just as easy to make a plan for an irregular income as it is for a regular one. Again, it’s all about a plan.
