Build your financial slack.

    If you're feeling financial stress, you're not alone. 167 million Americans feel the same way. We're here to help change all that.

    More slack equals less stress.
    When you subtract life's expenses from the money you make, what's left over is your financial slack. Having enough slack means you can pay for unexpected expenses and enjoy life without the constant stress.
