Organizing Your Financial Portfolio: Repair Your History and Start Budgeting

Posted on January 19, 2017 by Guy Atkinson

When it comes to organizing your financial portfolio, there are two steps that can help pretty much any person in any situation. First, you want to start repairing any damage from your past history, and second, you want to make sure that your budget is as flexibly close to perfect as you can get it.


To do these things, there are some questions that you should ask yourself to get your brain moving in the right direction, including wondering if third-party credit repair works, what a good budgeting process is, how adjusting spending habits can help, knowing good places to invest, and thinking about when you should start any of these steps for maximum efficiency.

Does Third Party Credit Repair Work?

If you’re in a position where your credit score is already suffering, then you may want to look into third party credit repair companies. Yes, you can do a lot of repair on your own using your own resources, but the benefit of an external company is that they already have the infrastructure and knowledge in place to put you on a path most likely to succeed. Trying to figure that path out on your own can be a bit dubious.

What’s a Good Budgeting Process?

When it comes time to put together a budget, you’ll find that it seems like there are an infinite number of options and suggestions from the online world of the internet, as well as a million pieces of advice from friends. The hardest part for you to accomplish is going to be picking from that pile, and finding the course of action that best suits your circumstance, rather than picking one arbitrarily.

How Can I Adjust Spending Habits?

Before you can adjust spending habits, you need to understand where your habits come from in the first place. Did you start them when you were still a kid, as your parents instilled them into your daily life, or have you picked them up from friends and coworkers as an adult? Are they responsible habits, or is there some room for improvement?

Where Can I Invest?

If you have the extra money to work with, setting yourself up with good, varied investments is one thing that professionals in the financial field will tell you can help you weather monetary storms of the future. This is the essence of not keeping all of your eggs in one basket.

When Should I Start?

The best time to start repairing your credit issues and begin budgeting is today. Right now. Reading through sets of advice and deciding which ones fit with your lifestyle will give you clear indicators of the potential financial plans that can bring you long-term success and happiness.

I’ve just re-read Richard Denny’s fantastic book ‘Selling to Win’, in which he mentions a time management technique that I learnt many, many years ago from an old boss of mine.
