A common trend in the personal finance community is the notion of living below your means.
Meaning, you’re able to live on less than what you make.
Most successful savers and financially successful people in general have mastered the living within your means phenomena.
In fact, they have mastered it so well that they actually live below their means!
As for the rest of us, we must crawl before we can walk.
Before we can master living within or under our means, we need to know how to stop living above our means.
In this episode, I’m sharing some simple ways you can live within your means and still enjoy a life you love.
Be prepared to take some mental notes and feel free to start implementing immediately!
