My Guest on the Show…


Did you know there are basically four different budgeting techniques to use with the everyday money. They are: the cash envelope system, the survival budget, the balanced money formula and the budget burndown.

If you’ve been a long-time listener, you know I am huge fan of the cash envelope system when you’re first getting started with forming a plan for your money. However, this doesn’t mean it’s a budgeting technique you have to develop and use forever.

This week Jeff Whelpley, the co-founder of Swish, is coming on the show to talk about the BUDGET BURNDOWN technique – which may be a great fit for you.

To give you a glimpse of how the burndown budget works, think of a fuel gauge on your car. Now, instead of gas and miles, think of money and life. If this doesn’t quite make sense yet –no worries. We will dive deep into the Budget Burndown in this week’s episode.
