Master Your Money in Seven Days – 1

One of my missions in life is to help people master their money, because usually the opposite is true.

The main thing I’ve learned = if you’re having money management issues you HAVE to create and follow a real, working, budget. Not one that’s in your head, but one that is documented in debits and credits, followed, adjusted, and followed some more.

As a personal finance blogger I’ve been experimenting with budgeting programs and budget education for years, and I’m very particular, so what I’m about to tell you is valuable info.

I Will Teach You to Win With Money in Seven Days

If you follow my advice and do the simple exercises I recommend, over the next seven days you will finally gain control of your financial life. I promise.

Note: it will only take you seven days to learn the concepts, but will take a life-long commitment to implement. So if you’re a quitter then stop reading now and go watch TV or something.

If you’re still with me, good, let’s get started.

Your Homework for Day 1

Watch this video from my friends over at YNAB.

Yep, that’s it for today.

But – be sure to come back tomorrow, unless you’re a quitter.

Eventually you’ll have to buy the YNAB (You Need A Budget) software, so if you want to do that now get it here at a $6 discount.

Note: If you’re not willing to invest less than $60 to master your money, then I can’t help you.
