Tool for managing your personal finances – ROI app

Do you wish to get clear tools for managing your personal finances, advice on budgeting, or coaching for managing your financial affairs? Start using ROI – the app for financial coaching! A three-month period costs EUR 14.99 to JHL members (normally EUR 19.99).

Get the app from the ROI website. Redeem the discount at checkout. Click “Onko sinulla kuponki? Klikkaa tästä käyttääksesi kuponkikoodin” and write the discount code JHLROI in the “Alekoodi” field.

The ROI app gives you advice on, say, how to make a budget for your household, and how planning your personal finances diminishes money-related stress.
