Today we’re talking about one of my favorite budget apps for cash flow and money management! This is exciting stuff!! What? You don’t think so? Hang with me and you might be skipping away from this video with a bit of excitement. Seriously. 😉
I’m sorry for all the frustration and confusion you’ve gone through in the past when attempting to budget your money. After implementing my signature Profit for Keeps framework so many people actually look forward to their daily or weekly money check-ins! They’re actually a bit giddy about! That’s not necessarily because they have a bajillion dollars either (although you’d be surprised how new revenue streams open up when you become intentional with your money.)
A good cash flow management tool helps you organize the money you have in a clear, visual format that puts you back in charge. Forget about restrictions. This type of system is going to give you permission and freedom!
So, what is my favorite software application for finding all of this joy? No, it’s NOT Mint, don’t even get me started. I use an envelope system (without the actual envelopes) called You Need a Budget.
Many of you are familiar with Profit First. The Profit First system is actually an envelope system! It makes sense to use envelope system software to take the Profit First system to a whole new level and create a holistic system for both personal and business finances.
Cash flow management with an envelope system is not the same as bookkeeping. Bookkeeping is all about looking back to see what you spent in the past. Cash flow management is about looking forward to how you want to spend your money now and in the future. Having a solid system in place allows you to make spending decisions based on the up-to-date information you have on hand instead of guessing!
