Budgets Do Work
Podcast listener, Marie, woke up one morning and decided that it was time to give this budgeting thing a try. She buckled down, analyzed her bank statements, and was shocked at how much money she was spending on eating out. (Yah, it’s actually a common big expense for most people).
You see, she had been dreaming of a trip to Iceland, but had no idea how to achieve it. Wouldn’t you know it, all along she had the money just sitting in her bank account waiting for her to find it.
It’s In Your Bank Account
Once she came up with a game plan to cut her expenses, Marie was able to afford her dream trip in less than a year. Oh, and she didn’t just go to Iceland for a few days. She went to Iceland for a whole two weeks!
In this Podcast Episode
- Learn how Marie implemented a few changes so that she could save HUGE bucks each month
- Find out how awesome her trip to Iceland really was
- What goals are on tap next, and her advice to other budgeting skeptics
Budgeting doesn’t have to be hard, and that’s coming from me as both the money expert, and an everyday person just like you. I really don’t like to budget each month. I kind of do it with a bit of an attitude, if I’m honest.
BUT, and this is a big one, I know how important budgeting is to my entire financial future. Budgeting is how I’m going to be able to achieve all the dreams and goals that I want to….and I’ve got some big ones to achieve.
Hang in there if budgeting is hard for you. Keep working at it and I promise you will see the difference in your wallet, and in your life, very soon.
