What are you waiting for? The benefits of budgeting are endless, and now you (and your partner) can discuss money without the tension. Join our conversation with Financial Coach Amy Scott to find out how you can create a financial plan that considers preferences, preserves relationships and supports the achievement of your life goals.
(Amy on limiting ourselves in our lives and finances.)
One of the most important things you can do before creating your budget is to determine your intentions for your money. Why are you creating your budget? What goals are you trying to achieve that require financing? As we’ve learned in previous episodes, the practice of intentionally manifesting and visualizing what you’d like to see more of in your life can make a world of difference in your outcomes and increase the likelihood of creating a life you love.
There are diverse perspectives regarding money. Some people are savers, some investors, and some spenders. There is no “right” kind of money person. However, budgeting lets you to see where your money is going and allows you to make any necessary adjustments required to stay on course. In the end, budgeting is about mindset and commitment to your financial plans.
Today’s guest, Financial Coach Amy Scott, shares that budgeting isn’t intended to be a constrictive system devised to suck the pleasure out of life. Instead, we can see our budget as a friend, or guide uniquely designed to assist us in achieving our unique heart’s desires.
While sometimes a challenge for us as individuals, crafting a financial plan can sometimes be even more difficult for couples. Money talk does not have to devolve into a conversation that threatens relational harmony! Coach Amy shares strategies and tips for intentional budget creation that can assist singles to create a plan that reflects personal and joint priorities, goals and dreams.
In the end, we hope you’ll see budgeting is simply another tool in our toolbox that can enable us to set and achieve our goals and, more importantly, live vibrantly.
