My money was OUT OF CONTROL until this one thing happened…

Since you’re familiar with my passion to help people win with their money, I’m sure you know that I am FIRED UP about what I’m about to tell you! In fact, I’m writing about a matter that, should it have the same impact on your life as it has had on mine, will alter your life forever.

My life used to be a financial mess. I was clueless about money, and our finances felt completely out of control. I graduated from college with a mountain of student loan debt (measured in tens of thousands of dollars!) and credit card balances (totaling in the thousands of dollars). I then proceeded to finance a brand new car and a home. Then I financed some furniture with the famous “24 months same-as-cash” approach.

Before I knew it, I was swimming in debt and completely broke. We literally averaged $4.13 in our bank account each month. “Miscellaneous cash withdrawal” from the ATM was one of my top expenses each month.  It was a mess! Can you identify with any of this?! If so, keep reading, because I believe your life could be radically altered by the same thing that happened to me.

My money was OUT OF CONTROL until this one thing happened. I hesitate to even write what it was because it sounds so simple and mundane. Yet, this one thing completely changed my financial future. Words can’t really do justice to the power this one thing gave me over money.

At the risk of offending people at the simple nature of this tool, I’m going to go ahead and tell you what it was.

It was …

A BUDGET!!!!!

Sounds simple doesn’t it?

But do you have one? Do you follow it? Do you prepare a new one each and every month?

182 months ago, my family prepared its first ever budget that actually worked. We haven’t skipped a single month since, and it has allowed us to gain control of our money in ways I once thought impossible.

Budgeting FIRES ME UP!

This is why I am FIRED UP to announce an all-new initiative here at I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. It’s called the 40-Day Budget Challenge!

What is a 40-Day Budget Challenge? It is a challenge designed especially for you to help you implement a budget that actually works!

I’m going to share a little about it below, but if you just want to learn the nitty-gritty stuff, just click HERE.

All About the Budget Challenge!

There was a time in my life that I was completely clueless about money.  My life was a financial mess. I had massive amounts of credit card debt, huge student loan balances and to top it off, I decided that I needed to purchase a brand new car and home.  I was on a downward spiral, and I needed to make some drastic changes, and fast.

Then, Jenn and I decided to prepare (and follow!) a budget.  It sounds so incredibly simple but it changed our financial future.  One hundred eighty-two months ago, my family prepared our first ever budget and have followed one every month since.

I know that many people have felt the same way that I initially did about my finances.  I know because I asked. Here is what people told us about budgeting:

  • 37.5% said their budgets do not work because they do not know how to budget effectively.
  • 27.5% of people said budgeting was “too frustrating and emotional” so they just gave up.
  • 25.8% felt like they did not make enough money so there was no point in creating a budget.
  • 27.5% said there “just was not enough time in the day” so they gave up.
  • 18.3% of people said they could not budget because their spouse would not participate.

Can you identify with any of this?  If so, I’m excited to tell you that I have a solution!  I know that many of you need help with budgeting so I have taken some time and created the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. Budget Challenge.  This 40-day challenge will equip you with everything you need to finally master your money.
