Spending less is better than saving more.
“Too many Americans can’t tame their spending, refusing to adopt a lifestyle that sets them up for longer-term financial independence. Everyone’s heard the standard rhetoric of ‘save more’, when really, you just need to spend less today, spend less tomorrow, spend less over the year, and then keep spending less over the course of your lifetime. That’s why we built Kate: to inspire everyday people to adopt a lifestyle that keeps them financially fit over the long haul of their life.” says Chris Whitlow, founder and CEO of edu(k)ate.
Kate was designed to help people think differently about where they let their money go each day. It’s all done without the complexity of confusing questions and explained with the colorful directness of someone who cares about your financial well being.
Unlike other retirement calculators, Kate helps people understand their future financial self in a different kind of way. This is done by focusing only on the most simple financial metric that people can control: their own personal spending.
“We want people to start being more aware of what they spend money on each and every day”, says Whitlow. People are encouraged to play around with their financial information and learn how a small change in their day-to-day lifestyle, can get them where they want to be in retirement.
edu(k)ate provides personalized financial wellness programs, helping employers take their workforce from financially stressed to financially savvy. Born out of Starter Studio and based in Orlando, the company was founded in 2013 by Chris Whitlow and Anthony Collini.
