What is Adaptu?

by Kristina Tahnyak on March 8, 2012 · 3 comments

Adaptu is a Money Management and Budgeting website that helps people learn about their Personal Finances.

Adaptu knows that finance is personal for everyone and no one’s personal financial situation is the same as anyone else’s.  Your finances are not the same as your neighbour, your friend, or your co-worker. One of the many great things about this site is that it’s completely free.  It’s free to sign up, it’s free to get advice, and it’s free to manage your money. All we have to do is add our accounts to our personal profile on Adaptu and we will be on the path to getting our finances in order, managing our budgets, and achieving our financial goals.

Adaptu Helps You Learn About Money

The Adaptu website is very user friendly and very easy to get started. Their Helpful Hints page provides step by step guidelines on how to add our accounts, how to create a budget, how to set up alerts, and how to project our monthly cash flow.

Adaptu provides users with several money tools to help us learn firsthand about our money.  Many other budgeting sites simply ask users to download our account information and then they provide us with alerts and weekly account updates.  Adaptu also provides this service but the quality that sets Adaptu apart from other budget and money management websites is that they help users learn about money, budgeting, and investing with hands on tools.  If we are forced to manage our own money (with a little bit of help from Adaptu) then we are also forced to adapt helpful money habits.

Adaptu’s helpful tools provide us with a complete overall picture of our finances. We can set and track our budget online , we can view and keep track of our investment account performance, track our debt repayment progress, and we can also set up a monthly calendar which helps us manage due dates and important dates.

Adaptu Provides Well Rounded Advice

Adaptu offers advice from industry professionals on several different topics such as Budget for Life, Love and Money (featuring yours truly), College Savings, 401K How To, as well as Debt Relief.

  • David Ning is the Adaptu Budget for Life coach; he brings his expertise from Money Ning to Adaptu to help us manage our income and expenses on a daily basis.
  • Dorethia Conner is the College Savings coach and expert for Adaptu.  She is the President of Conner Coaching  where she helps people save for their goals.
  • Jeremy Vohwinkle is the 4001k How To coach at Adaptu.  He helps us manage our retirement savings and 401K plans.  You may know Jeremy from his work on Generation X Finance.
  • Glen Craig helps us get out of debt as the Debt Relief coach for Adaptu.  Glen also helps people with their finances, their debt, and their budgets at Free From Broke.

Adaptu is Interactive

The Adaptu Community is a place where users can interact with each other, share their stories, ask the Adaptu experts their ask questions and get some answers. Adaptu also has a Mobile App available on iTunes so we can manage our money from anywhere at any time of the day.
