“So, I want you to check in with your spending. Make sure your money is going where you want it to go. It's hard to reach those financial goals if it's not right, like you need it to go to your goals. So, if it's going to fast food, if it's going to Amazon, and if you're not actually looking at the numbers, you're not going to estimate it in a realistic manner if you're just doing it in your head. So, you need to actually check in with your spending, track your spending, see where your money is going so that you can correct it and send it to where you actually want it to go.”

Do you need time, space, and accountability to take action on the things you KNOW you should be doing, such as budgeting so you can actually pay off debt, save money, make a meal plan, and all the other things that keep falling off your to-do list? Would you thrive in a supportive community of other busy moms who understand what you're going through and are working to achieve similar financial goals?
