The Retirement Trainer

Nov 18, 2021

It’s the holidays–and that means we’re gearing up for Black Friday deals, Christmas gifts, and more.

Giving (and receiving) gifts can be a whole lot of fun–but it’s also one of the easiest times of the year to overspend, rack up credit card debt, and make financial decisions that feel better in the moment than they do in the long run.

With that in mind, today’s episode is all about how to set an effective budget. We’re talking about why budgeting gets so contentious, how to eliminate conflict through budgeting, and tools you can use to know where your money’s really going–and start saving lots of it.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn: 

  • Why it’s more important than ever before to have a solid budget and revisit it regularly.
  • The value of budgeting early in life.
  • How to create your first real, accurate budget, hold to it, and repeat this process every month.
  • How a budget creates financial freedom, makes it easier to identify and solve problems, and address money issues when they arise.
