AMWA Member Benefits
Nav.it — For Your Financial Wellbeing
You’ve invested significant time and energy in your medical training and career. Now you are trying to meet all your responsibilities at work and home so it’s hard to focus on financial decisions, too. We’re here to help. Since money is a leading cause of stress, AMWA wants to provide tools that will help you define and incorporate good financial habits into your daily routine. For this, AMWA is partnering with Nav.it, a financial coaching app that makes it easy for you to practice money mindfulness every day. Take a test drive –>
Nav stands for, we navigate “it”, meaning life. “It” stands for all the ups and downs, injustices, barriers, and constant life challenges. Nav.it represents power, accomplishment, and the confidence you feel when you have successfully overcome a challenging situation. Whether it’s financial stressors like money management, a salary negotiation, a relocation, a cost of living increase, or just a basic conflict over who should plan dinner, Nav.it is here for you.
How the Nav.it App Works
Using Nav.it helps how you talk, think, and feel about money. It will help you track your spending, create a budget, set goals, begin saving, and stay on top of your finances. At the same time. Later on, you will have the option to meet with an accredited financial coach virtually for 1:1 sessions if you want help in overcoming a financial issue, answer investment questions, or get guidance on how to reach a financial goal. Hopefully this demo linked below gives you a better sense of how Navit works. Take a Test Drive

Nav.it Will Help You Establish Money Mindfulness Routines with 4 Behaviors
It is one thing to look at a list of transactions on your banking statements; it’s a completely different experience to interact with the process. With the Nav.it app’s Transaction Swiping, for example, you look at each purchase and review how it made you feel. Like a dating app, you swipe right on transactions you feel good about, left on those you aren’t so keen on, and up for those that are just “meh”. It’s never been easier to connect what you feel with what you spend.
Reflect on your daily mindset
With daily mindset check-ins, you will be prompted to take a moment to reflect and improve your relationship with your money. This time helps you manage any worries and anxiety so you’ll stress less throughout the day.
Improve the mental accounting of your money. Start with a budget calculated from the history of your connected accounts. Organize it to create a plan that helps you reach your goals.
With greater Insights, you’ll bring more meaning to your money. Once you connect an account with Nav.it, you’ll be able to swipe right (positive), left (negative), and up (neutral) on all of your transactions. The more you swipe, the more comprehensive your data gets.
