Income Goal / Reverse Budget

I am a commissioned salesperson. I am wondering if there is a way for me to set a goal or budget to track how far I am away from my monthly earning goal?

ie) I set a goal to earn $10,000 /month. Is there a way to easily track this progress?

  • Not in YNAB. You can, however, see the income received thus far pretty easily (search for To Be Budgeted in All Accounts), but Goals are to help budget for spending/saving.

  • Since your income is variable, I'd highly recommend targeting your budget at your average salary level. Use a Deferred Income category to stash any income received exceeding the average. When income is short, you can supplement from that DI category. This isolates the impact of variable income to a single category rather than the feast/famine spread throughout the budget.
