I feel particularly fortunate to have begun using Income Companion just before the holidays. I've always known how to "make it work" with our finances but failed to maximally achieve our goals. Our family has been growing, we bought a house and the changing variable always seemed to get the best of us. We never had a manageable way to keep a handle on the full picture and the tangible impact of our choices. Now, with this program, we can look foward and see our opportunity (and pit-falls before they get the better of us). The picture that this program creates helps us to make well informed and objective decisions. I love it!

It's tough to dream when you are living paycheck to paycheck. Instead of putting aside savings and otherwise planning for the future, your focus is getting to your next payday. Credit cards are often used when cash runs short. When using Income Companion you essentially forget about your paydays. Your everyday money is scheduled in ways that make sense for your spending money as well as paying your bills. You no longer live paycheck to paycheck.
Income Companion plans everything. You have a clear picture of your future income, spending money, bills, credit card payments, along with short and long term saving plans. The program automatically records your activity so that when it comes time to pay bills, balance your checking account and reconcile your credit card statements Income Companion simplifies everything.
Income Companion runs on your personal computer. All of the information that you manage using the program is stored locally on your personal computer. Nobody can see your financial information unless you let them.
Websites store your financial information somewhere on the Internet, in the cloud, where it could be at risk of unauthorized exposure both where the information is stored and while data is being transmitted from and to your PC. Income Companion runs on your local computer where your personal information is stored on a local disk drive. Nobody has access to your personal information unless you give them permission.
Money is 1 of the top 10 reasons for divorce. Planning the first year of your combined everyday money, using the Income Companion static projection feature, before you walk down the aisle eliminates the post-honeymoon financial friction.
