My Money – Personal Finance & Budgeting Online Course

My Money – Personal Finance & Budgeting Online Course

Personal finance and budgeting is a plan that helps you to allocate income towards expenses, savings and debt repayment. It is important to ensure you are spending less than you have coming in to avoid debt problems and other financial issues. There are many factors to include when allocating a personal budget, including mortgages or rent, bills, insurance and other important amenities. Once these are paid, it is possible to save for more luxurious items or spend what is known as discretionary income.

How Can I Budget More Effectively?

This course, developed exclusively by e-Careers, will help you to plan expenditure for both short-term and long-term so you can map out your own financial success. Tax, insurance and home costs are just some examples of what you will study in-depth, making your spending easier to understand.

We will make budgeting easier and guide you in conscious decisions when allocating your income to expenses. You will also learn how to save for retirement, emergencies, luxuries and other life events which will affect your plans. We provide practical guidance on the different ways, tools and websites you should be using to help you save money.

Once you have the knowledge and the practical guidance of where to go and what to do, we will also walk you through the next steps to tighten up your finances.
