“Budgeting, without the drudgery” is here!
Yours truly and webmaster Charles (often not in that order) have put together an easy-to-use, affordable tool that will make the financial life of anyone who uses it a lot more tolerable, and, once the results are seen, even enjoyable.
Here’s what CYMnow.com promises, and delivers — a unique approach to money management (“budgeting,” if you will) that will, in a secure, safe, and confidential environment:
- Help you quickly determine “where you stand” with your monthly finances, without traditional “bookkeeping” or “line-item budgeting.”
- Show you a simple, easy-to-use system that will enable you to live and stay within your means.
- Generate a complete roadmap for financial control, debt elimination, and additional saving.
- Help you target spending reductions that will directly lead to either faster elimination of your debts or saving more money for future needs.
- Save your information so you can revise and update it in later months.
- Create “what if” scenarios to assess the impact of financial decisions.
This is a signficant part of what I have been teaching at companies during the past 15 years. Now I’m very proud to say that it’s on the Internet for everyone.
The CYMnow.com project is the culmination of an on-and-off effort over many years to make “everyday” money management ….. well, manageable. It has been on-and-off because the programming tools haven’t all come together until relatively recently, because the number of people actively looking for the kind of help CYMnow.com provides on the Internet has reached what I believe is critical mass, and because ….. well, it’s needed, badly, by so many people, who I believe would be only so glad to get their house in order if they could only be shown how to do it without becoming closet accountants. Now, they can.
You can be one of them. Or (just in time for the holidays, as the saying goes) any one of a number of people or families you know could benefit from a gift subscription from you (you can set the one-year subscripton period to start at a later date, like…. Christmas day).
I encourage you to go there, and learn more. You’ll be very pleased at what it can do, how easy it is to use, and especially how affordable it is. And wait until you see what the primary method for building a subscriber base is. Does the fact that it could cost you nothing if you refer 4 other buyers appeal to you?
UPDATE: Answering the inevitable — No, this does not represent a change in direction at BizzyBlog. My intent is to continue blogging on business, economic and political topics (hopefully in that order, which has not always been the case), and to be as opinionated as ever when appropriate. In an ideal world, success at CYMnow.com could enable that the blogging effort, which has sometimes gotten in the way of my primary line of work, to continue at its current pace, and make it more manageable.
Another inevitable question — Will BizzyBlog turn into a mere marketing feed for CYMnow.com? Answer (if the previous paragraph wasn’t convincing enough): Of course not. But will I promote the CYMnow.com site from time to time and advertise it on BizzyBlog? Well, yeah. Exactly why wouldn’t I? And why shouldn’t I? I certainly promise to get nowhere near annoying about it, because I’m as interested in retaining readers as readers are in avoiding being annoyed. More important, I believe that many of readers (not to mention millions of others) will benefit from the service — so of course I’m not going to hide it under a bushel.
