What is financial slack?

Financial slack is your income minus expenses — which accumulates into savings.  If you have enough slack you can handle paying for unexpected expenses and enjoy life without the constant stress of money that affects so many of us.  Building financial slack reduces your financial stress and improves your financial health.

Do I need more financial slack?

Below are areas where many of us are experiencing financial stress.
Select the area where you want to start building slack right now:
