Lauren Welch is stopping by Budget Smart Girl today as part of her book tour. Check out the blurb and excerpt and be sure to enter the giveaway. Lauren is also offering $3 off her book.
Do you find the idea of cleaning toilets more interesting (and even more rewarding!) than talking about budgets? Does having (and following) a budget scare you?
Do you want to successfully live with a budget but no matter what you have tried, you have not been able to successful make, keep and track your financial life with a budget?
This electronic, downloadable book is written to anyone looking to get into, fall in love (or back in love) with or receive tips and resources to get started on the right track to being successful financially, with budgets.
It sure is the dreaded b..b…b “B” word and for good reason! Budgets make people scared, confused and self conscious and let’s be honest, most of the time we would rather just not do it. If this is you, grab this good read and get back on track.
Lauren writes in a fun but educational way that brings the important topic the time and respect it needs.
Once downloaded and saved or printed, it can truly be “The only Budget Book” you will ever need.
…and thank goodness for that!
While at the doctor’s office recently, there was a comic of a doctor telling his patient, “you can either fit an hour into your busy schedule to exercise or you can be dead 24 hours a day.” Not completely relevant here but, fitting in personal finance is as important as anything else. If you work, be responsible for the money you earn. Just like we were given bodies to take care of, we should take care of our financial bodies, the money we have, today and in the future, so like our bodies, will last longer and feed us into retirement. Spend the time with good-for-you vegetables like budgets (stick with me here…) and time in cardio-like budget tracking to be successful.
