Find The Balance

Never forget that expenses rise to meet income, this is the gist of Parkinson's law. This is the reason that a couple months after most people get a raise; it feels just as tight financially as it did before the raise. “The real poverty of typical families is found neither in their low income nor in costly essential expenses but rather in not understanding their own cash flow. Regardless of income level, overspending causes poverty. Saving and budgeting produces wealth. Cash flow is the net movement of money for a given entity. If the net flow is negative, the household ran a deficit for the year. One year of deficit means many years of debt. With interest payments, it frequently leads to financial defeat. If net flow is positive, the household ran a surplus. One year of surplus means many years of investable savings that, with market growth, frequently leads to financial success. This logic and method of calculation applies to any entity, be it private or public, corporate or familial. Cash flow issues cause corporations to sink or swim and households to go bankrupt".

"The decisions we make today–to run a surplus or a deficit–impact ourselves and the institutions we manage long after we’ve forgotten what we did that year. The deficit years of our past create the financial emergencies of our present. Meanwhile, years of plenty and surplus create smooth sailing for the unknowns of the future", Marotta, David J.

This consulting service is the solution for anyone who:

1) Wants to delegate budget execution to lighten their load of business/personal responsibilities
2) Wants to manage their cash flow more aggressively than they are independently
3) Wants to learn how to manage their cash flow according to basic fundamental financial principles

Back 2 Basics clients can simply check their email to review their budget and see their payment confirmations - it's that simple. Your cash flow will be managed through your online banking utilizing your bank’s online bill payment system to schedule your payments, this provides peace of mind so everything is completely transparent – where your money went and how much was paid.

I contacted B2B and felt a sense of relief knowing I had a partner to consult and that I had a cushion for unexpected expenses in my savings, I’d never had that before. I paid off the furniture I’ve financed since working with B2B which eliminated a bill, freed up more cash and eliminated the high interest rate. It feels like I’m progressing when it comes to my finances, my outlook on paying bills and budgeting is better. I’d tell anyone considering this service to think about how long you’ve been saying you’re going to do better with your money. Just make the call, you have to be ready for a sense of power and embrace change

After my consultation, I realized how much adjustment my finances needed. The first benefit was seeing more money in my 401k. The conversation was an eye opener and taught me a lot more than I knew even though I'm very good with my money. I was very satisfied
