Build a budget that actually works
Most households set unrealistic budgets for themselves and then give up once they aren't able to maintain their goals. At Capital CFO, we start with you and your family. We will evaluate your current spending and then set goals that you can stick to.
The only way to set up a budget is to make sure it works for you today and changes as your needs change. We help you learn what your goals are and what you hope to achieve. We then set realistic goals with only you and your spending in mind.
What matters to you?
What are your current priorities?
What is important to you now?
Where do you want to go?
We then find areas to save more money
Keep it simple
The main objective of your budget is to figure out how to redirect your money toward priorities – or, better yet, dreams – you consider important. There are many fancy tools you can use to set up and monitor a budget but the more simple you keep your systems, the more likely you are to stay on track. At Capital CFO, we help you to determine what works for you and how best to set up a budget process that keeps you and your family on your path.

Monitor and track
Here is where families start to stumble. Most are comfortable in evaluating their current spending and setting up short and long range plans, but then they run out of time in keeping track of their weekly spending. Without monitoring, you cannot commit to your budget or your goals.
