First Fearless Budgeting Q&A “Open Office Hours” Scheduled

Do You Have Questions or Need More Support?

I’m happy to see so many of you have enrolled in the Fearless Budgeting online training and are working through the program. I got an email the other day from someone wishing for support around this training.

So I thought it might be time to see if having “open office hours” would be helpful. If you haven’t yet enrolled, you might want to at least check out the preview lessons and see if you have any questions.

If you can’t attend in person, then please leave your question or topic in the student discussion forum or email me and I’ll answer it in the call.

The audio for the conference call will be posted in the discussion area.

I hope you’ll join me for discussion. Remember, if you have a question or concern, there are definitely others who do as well.

If it seems to be helpful, then I’ll consider doing a weekly call. And, I’ll think about adding in web conferencing down the road if video demonstrations would be helpful.

I hope to see you there!

The Birth of Fearless Budgeting

Listen to this blog post: “I Can’t Stop Spending!” podcast, Episode 053.

I’ve decided to create a series of spending plan training podcasts because it feels like that is the most important information I can offer you right now. If you want help creating or maintaining a spending plan, this podcast series is for you. Even if you already have a spending plan, the training will be a helpful refresher and will likely provide you a with new perspectives and tips. It’s the exact same process I’ve successfully used with my one-on-one students for seven years. And there’s no charge for this podcast series.

The Birth of Fearless Budgeting

I decided to call my training podcast “Fearless Budgeting.” I wrestled with this name for months. As you may know, I despise the word budget, but I strongly believe in the act of allocating money to categories, which is the definition of budgeting. I’ll go into more detail about spending plans vs. budgets in a later episode. But “Fearless Budgeting” truly encapsulates my overriding approach … to gently take you by the hand and help you overcome your terror around facing the truth of your spending, which is a crucial first step in the process, and to ease you into a practice that will keep you clear around your money and engaged with your spending plan ongoing.

By the end of the series, you will have a spending plan foundation and you will know how to work with your spending plan ongoing. And, you can always arrange a one-on-one session with me if you need additional help. Just go to for details.
