#129: Budgeting Multiple Six Figures with CGS Client Rachel

While making a lot of money may seem like the answer to your problems, if you’re not managing it well, you won’t have anything to show for it.

Just ask my friend and City Girl Savings client Rachel.

When Rachel and I first started working together in January 2021, she was making well-over six figures but didn’t have a clue about where it was going.

Fast forward 3 years later and Rachel is making more than ever, saving, and investing more than ever and doing it all with a solid budget plan.

In this episode, Rachel and I are discussing how growing and budgeting your income, whether you’re making six-figures or not, can completely transform your life and finances.

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • [03:20] Rachel shares that she grew up in a single-parent home and described money as being tight and not talked about much.
  • [09:45] Even with making a good salary, Rachel feared looking at her bank app. She would avoid looking at the balance, especially after paying bills.
  • [17:00] Having Raya make a budget for Rachel allowed Rachel to release some pressure and focus on sticking to the budget that was designed for her.
  • [32:45] While Rachel doesn’t fully support “job-hopping”, she does agree that major salary increases come from a new role (whether in the same company or a new company).
  • [42:18] Some days you’re going to give a little more to work. Other days you can give a little more to your family. It will never be perfect.
