Money trends in 2018 - Financial Fitness

There’s a lot of talk about financial fitness these days, and rightly so. We have more material things than ever before, and yet financial stress is everywhere. It’s little wonder that people are getting sick and tired — literally sick and tired — of worrying about money.

But there is a bright side. Just like the physical fitness boom that kicked off in the ‘80s, more and more people are becoming interested in getting financially fit, so much so that it’s growing into a global movement of like-minded people who reject the idea that it’s normal and ok to spend life worrying about money.

Employers are jumping on board, too. Workplaces are increasingly offering financial wellness programs as part of their employee benefits. There’s recognition that a financially healthy workforce is more motivated and productive. After all, how can you be happy in your job if you’re worried about your rent payments or you can never afford a holiday? How can you be happy in your marriage if you’re always fighting about money? And how can you look forward to the future when it feels impossible to get ahead?

MyBudget has always been at the forefront of the financial fitness movement. In fact, when it launched nearly twenty years ago, people said there would be no demand for budgeting services. Budgeting was too boring, they said. Having now helped more than 75,000 clients, MyBudget continues to prove them wrong. Perhaps budgeting is a dull topic for dinner conversation, but achieving your life goals isn’t. There’s nothing boring about saving to start a family or buy a house or launch your own business or go on an overseas holiday.

What makes budgeting exciting is that it’s the process of creating a customized plan for your money and your life. It’s about working out your financial priorities and what you want to achieve with your money this week, this month, this year, this decade, this lifetime. Budgeting isn’t just something you do, it’s a philosophy you live. And when you manage your finances well, it goes a long way towards your life working out exactly the way you want it to.

But budgeting isn’t always easy. Most people learn their money skills from friends and family, which can result in all sorts of mixed up ideas. Plus, budgeting goes against the very grain of consumer society where the drip-feed message is to spend now and worry about the consequences later. So, for lots of people, getting financially fit means changing how they perceive money and relate to it.

But here’s the thing — you don’t have to do it on your own. The purpose at MyBudget is to equip the entire financial fitness nation with the tools, knowledge and support it needs to succeed.

Instead of worrying about money, imagine a world where everyone has, in their pocket, access to their exact financial position and future outlook, with all their bills and expenses and savings and goals mapped out before them. Make a change to your budget and see your short and long-term projections change before your eyes. Don’t worry about setting aside savings or paying bills manually — it gets done directly from your budget. Got a question? Call or message your support team for advice.

Sounds like the future of money? But it’s not. It’s happening at MyBudget right now.

So how do you get financially fit? It’s not achieved by looking at your bank statement once a month. Your financial fitness level is the sum of your daily money habits. And that’s where the MyBudget team does its best work on your behalf, getting you financially fitter, freeing you from your money worries and helping you live the life you want.

That’s MyBudget’s vision for the financial fitness revolution — a world where you have the right information, structure and support at your fingertips to live a financially fit and abundant life.

Whether you’re a MyBudget member or not, are you a member of the financial fitness revolution? What are your financial goals for 2018? Will you be saving? Paying down debt? Kicking bad habits? Take the time now, because in a year from now, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t start getting financially fit sooner.

We analyse your situation and design a plan that achieves your goals.

Until you’ve examined your finances in detail, it’s difficult to determine your exact financial position. At MyBudget, the budget plans we prepare are true long-range money management plans. The plan projects your finances over a 12-month period. So you have a clearer picture of what your future looks like, not just how your budget is week-to-week.

What will you do with your savings? Reduce your mortgage? Invest in shares? Take a holiday? Or simply enjoy the feeling of satisfaction that comes with having savings to fall back on.

Personal budgeting is the only way to truly gain control of your money and your financial future.

The benefits of personal budgeting:

  • Personal budgeting is the only way to gain a thorough understanding of your financial situation.

  • Personal budgeting is one of the most effective methods for paying down debts and avoiding ongoing debt in the future.
