Is this course for you?
I know you may be wondering, "How do I know if this course is right for me?"
I know that the course is not for EVERYONE, but I do believe that budgeting is good for everyone's finances. Honestly, if you already have a budget and are keeping track of your money consistently, you probably do not need this course.
But if you are not confident or have any doubt that you aren't getting the most out of your hard work's worth, then do consider taking the course.
This course is especially for:
- People who have never budgeted before and don't know where to start.
- People who have tried to budget before, but was unsuccessful in saving money.
- People who have failed to make budgeting a lifelong practice.
- People who live paycheck to paycheck and want to break the cycle.
- People who want to get out of debt.
- People who feel stuck in the daily grind.
- People who are unhappy with their current work and hope to pursue a passion project instead.
- People who want to plan for their future.
Budgeting is not the same as dumping a bunch of numbers into an Excel sheet.
Budgeting is more than the numbers.
It's a way of living.
It requires good spending habits and the right mindset. It allows for the usage of money as a means to get to that dream life. If you learn how to master your budget, you can break the paycheck to paycheck cycle, get rid of debt, and increase your net worth. You can also work towards financial freedom, which is the ultimate goal. By taking this course, you are making sure that you are starting on the correct foot, down a path towards financial independence.
“Mastering a Budget” challenged me to think harder about my goals and how my finances play a role in achieving such goals. Developing a clear understanding of my “why” for budgeting has kept me on track when I feel like I am going off course with my finances. While on this budgeting journey, I realized that I was spending more than expected on certain categories and not saving nearly enough towards my goals. Additionally, the frugal challenges detailed in the course put me outside of my comfort zone but had long last financial benefits that I will continue to carry on. “Mastering A Budget” provided me with the motivation and tools to create a budget that is well suited for my lifestyle and goals. I highly recommend this course to everyone!"

"Having graduated with a significant amount of student debt, I realized I needed to be more aware of my budget and how I spend my money. However, I did not have much insight on how to properly manage my finances let alone having a game plan on how to do so. This course not only helped provide me a fundamental understanding on budgeting, but was also very concise and easy to follow. To anyone that wants to better understand budgeting but doesn't know where to start, I would definitely recommend this course."

My name is Samantha Tillapaugh and I am otherwise known as TheDebtist! I graduated from dental school with a whopping debt of over $550,000. Since then, I have started my repayment journey and have had some success by being extremely frugal and by living a financially fit life. I am pursuing financial independence, without putting my life on hold, and I want to help others do the same. I currently write on a blog called TheDebtist where I share some of my tips, tricks, and life hacks, as well as a lifestyle that I think many people can benefit from. Hopefully you join me on the journey, and along the way find something useful to your own.
