Quotes from today's episode:

The root cause is our environment. It's a generational theme that has really not changed over the years. We've seen some improvement, but we as a people are still behind. We are behind when we look at our counterparts, as far as saving, putting money away, and investing

A budget is simply a way to navigate our money. We are telling our money where to go, how we're going to spend it and how we value it.

Find a way to change the trajectory of your financial situation. Learn how to create realistic, meaningful goals that you are happy to have. And it's not just a one time thing. It must become a lifetime change. Make it a lifetime shift!

 

One Action To Blaze Your Trail:

Track your income and expenses for the next 14 – 21 days and take an assessment of where your money is going. What can you cut back?
