Do you want a free budgeting session with me? I'll tell you exactly how to in just a second, but first.
Maybe you’ve been trying for a while to get on a budget. Maybe you’re 1) in the process of learning and 2) maybe you’re having a hard time getting your spouse on board.
If you’re anything like I was, it actually took me several years to finally figure out the right way to execute a proper budget (and yes, there is a right and a wrong way).
What would have been INCREDIBLY helpful for me would have been to sit with someone who understood the process and let them walk through it with my numbers and situation while I sort of looked “over their shoulder”.
For me, that would have just eliminated a lot of wasted time and would have saved me a TON of “pulling out my hair”, especially when I got overwhelmed to the point of just throwing up my hands in the air and quitting (which, by the way is a VERY natural part of this process) and I would argue that, at some point you’re actually going to need someone or a community of someones to help you push through that. More on that later.
So, if a little expert budgeting guidance is something you’ve been desiring, I have a fix for you AND it’s 100% free!
Today I’m re-introducing my “Budget With Me” YouTube series where every Wednesday @10am EST, I take your numbers and situation (anonymously), plug them into a proper budget, analyze them and give you some of the same coaching pointers and insights I give my private coaching community and my 1:1 coaching students.
Okay, now let’s walk through the instructions in the email:
Step 1: Populate the “Everything I Owe” Google doc.
Step 2: Complete the “Budget With Me” intake questions.
Step 3: Subscribe to my YouTube channel and watch me write your budget.
There’s also a really cool special little bonus that I’m giving you for FREE at the bottom of the email, but I’m not going to show that in the video. You’ll have to send me your info to get access to it. But I promise you it will be worth your while.
By the way, just to set some realistic expectations for you, it normally takes about 90-120 days for most people to get on and stay on an accurate and sustainable budget (at a cost of about $2500 for a full four month coaching cadence).
So that’s it, friend! I’m giving you a 100% free way to help you get your budgeting process started or even just a little closer to perfected if you’re a little further along in the process. I mean really, how cool is that?!
But here’s the thing, YOU actually have to put in a little effort to get me 1) your numbers and 2) a little bit of info about your situation, SO THAT I can do your budget. If you’re not willing to put in that effort, there’s sadly not much I can do for you.
AND, truth moment here, it might speak to the fact that maybe you’re just not willing to do whatever it takes to get control of your money, get on a budget and change your financial trajectory.
The truth is that none of this stuff is easy, contrary to what some personal finance “gurus” would have you believe. It’s not easy, BUT it is doable with some guidance into the proper steps and principles.
This is something that I’m offering as a public service because, as a coach, I’m on a mission to dramatically reduce the statistic that 78% of the population lives paycheck to paycheck and would have a hard time coming up with $400 for an emergency.
So with that, I’m offering a service for FREE that I normally charge a couple of hundred dollars for a one-off coaching session for and I’m happy to do it if it gets you just one micro step toward your overall financial goals.
Also, I mentioned earlier that you’re GOING to run into roadblocks in this process. It’s 100% normal and to be expected.
So I wanted to offer you 4 additional ways (below) to get help when you do get stuck.
Now, if this decision process is something you struggle with and you constantly feel isolated about, I’ve got some great news for you and it’s free.
