It’s Not About The Destination

An episode of Money Talks with Melissa B

By Money Talks with Melissa B
Join me for inspiration on how to take control of your life by taking control of your finances. We talk about the actual process of budgeting as well as things we can do to make it easier to stick to the budget. If it was just about numbers everyone would be successful with their money but it's only 20% math and 80% behavior. We talk about the math and we focus on the behavior. I share things from my life that can help you see things you haven't noticed or encourage you to keep putting in the effort.
