In this episode: the make-whole mindset, budgeting, grace and space, automation, and splitting it before you get it.
This week, we are re-joined by Tiffany Aliche, better known as “The Budgetnista,” to discuss her new book “Made Whole: The Practical Guide to Reaching Your Financial Goals” which details her 10-step system towards financial wholeness, the ease of automating payments, the importance of accountability partners, as well as designing separate accounts to reflect your needs. It can be intimidating to begin addressing your finances and planning your financial future, but your past mistakes or lack of knowledge should never be the thing holding you back from beginning your FI journey. Building a financial foundation for yourself doesn’t happen overnight. Every day requires you to make the necessary changes and instill new habits that get you closer and closer to your goals. And while personal finance is personal, there is no reason to go through it alone. No matter your background or what stage of life you begin FI, there is a large community of people on this journey who will embrace and celebrate the smaller milestones just as much as the bigger ones!
