#97: How to Give Your Budget a Makeover

Do you always start the month with a new budget and high hopes, only to forget about it a few days later?

Is your problem sticking to the budget instead of creating it?

Or maybe you have completely given up on the thought of a doable budget?

If your current budget or budgeting process isn’t working, it’s probably time to give your old budget a makeover!

In this episode, I’m sharing some powerful ways to revamp your budget and make it as effective as possible for you!

Remember, a budget takes work, so commit to seeing it through and it’ll become second nature in no time.

Here’s a glance at this episode:

      • [01:55] Creating long-term budgets doesn’t always work as well as intended. Start with a monthly budgeting routine.
