HOW OUR LIVES HAVE CHANGED...
Before the Covid19 outbreak: Families were busy. Did you think you have not enough time?
After the Covid19 outbreak: Families are at home all the time, but even busier. Now we are juggling work life and child care and homeschooling at the same time.
Even if we still have work, we get stressed about our money. And many of us worry about how to adapt should the crisis impact us more. You should react now and get the full picture of our income and spending and adjust our budgets. But this requires a clear mind and time...
...AND THIS IS WHAT A DAILY MONEY MANAGER CAN DO FOR YOU
You can choose from a variety of tasks. Whether you want to outsource only a few, or having a full CFO for your family, I can help you.
Under the current situation, most urgent tasks are:
Explore your income and spending, based on the date from the last months
Create a budget and start tracking expenses
Verify the budget figures and create a slim version with the minimum expenses
Think what changes could happen and what their financial impact would be
Other available tasks are
Coordinating and overseeing bill payments: ensure timely bill payments, set-up automatic payments (e.g. for utilities), prepare checks for signature
Implementing spending control: use a prepaid card with spending restrictions on the allowance
Balancing checkbooks and reviewing bank statements: check for unauthorized charges and potential savings (e.g. insurances, subscriptions, paperless billing)
Organizing and creating filing systems for all relevant financial information and documents: this provides input for CPAs, tax preparers, and Power of Attorneys
Sorting mail and controlling junk mail: handle bills and other mailed requests in time and destroy unsolicited offers
Preventing fraud: review credit report and monitoring accounts for suspicious activities
In case you need assistance with managing your daily life (e.g. calendar, mail, special projects), check our offering of Personal Assistant services.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
During a first complimentary meeting (approx. 30 minutes) we will get to know each other and I will get a detailed understanding of your situation and needs. I will explain how I could work with you and which services will help to improve your situation. If we decide to work together, we will sign the service contract and will be ready for the start.
Depending on your situation we will have weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly meetings. Meetings will be either in person or by phone or video call. Between those sessions, we will communicate by email, and I will do tasks remotely to support you. Note that during the first phase of our cooperation, we will have sessions more often to set-up everything.
Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus, I am offering only remote services via phone or video call until further notice.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The billing rate for Daily Money Management services is between $75 and $85 per hour (depending on the payment method and amount of hours in the package purchased).
After the ramp-up phase, most of my customers have ongoing costs of $300 - $450 per month. Note that this depends on the induvial need and range of service, it can be less or more than this.
