“A budget provides peace and security.”—Brian Buffini
Whether you have more money in the bank than you know what to do with or you’re searching the couch cushions at the end of the month looking for spare change, you need a budget. Not only do the majority of people not have a budget, many fear even creating one! Creating a budget is nothing to fear; it’s an empowering activity that gives you total control over your money instead of the other way around. In this episode, Brian Buffini gives in-depth information to help you create a budget that works for your financial goals and circumstances. You’ll learn why most people don’t budget, how to prioritize your expenses and the apps that can help, and how to create a surplus each month, even if money is tight. By the end of the episode, you’ll be motivated to save more and build wealth.
