November 14th, 2022

Welcome to episode 101 of The Money Mindset Podcast!

Today, we're kicking off part 1 of our Q&A series where I will answer questions sent in by members of the Money Plan Bootcamp.

This will be a several part series as we have lots of questions to answer like what to do with the 3rd paycheck in a month when paid biweekly, how to handle child support income in your budget, how to build tracking as a habit, and my favorite place to sell items.
