About this Episode

Is perfectionism keeping you stuck? Do you constantly worry and overthink about everything, making it difficult to manage your finances?

Join me in today's episode as I strategize with Gina about how to implement her plan by tracking her spending, planning where to put her leftover money, creating a visual, and learning to focus on one thing at a time to help her overcome her perfectionism so she can stick to her budget and plan ahead.
