Welcome back to my podcast! Today we’re talking about how to become a financial badass. We’ve already covered the physical stuff, so now it’s time to talk about your money. You can’t be a real badass if you’re stuck in a job you hate and can’t take a break from it when you need it. I’m not saying you should quit your job tomorrow, but you gotta start working towards being a financial badass.
So, the first step is to figure out where you’re at financially. How much money are you making, and how much is going out every month? Are you spending more than you’re making? Are you barely breaking even? Or are you actually saving money? You gotta know this stuff before you can make any changes.
The best way to do this is to make a spreadsheet of your finances. Just list out all your income and expenses for three months. And I mean everything, every penny that comes in and goes out. Don’t judge yourself or stop doing anything; just track it.
Once you’ve got that info, you can figure out where you need to make changes. Maybe you need to cut back on eating out or find a way to make more money. Whatever it is, you’ll have a better idea of what’s going on and how you can improve.
Remember, being rich and being a financial badass aren’t the same thing. It’s not about how much money you have; it’s about being in control of your finances and making smart decisions. So, start by tracking your income and expenses, and we’ll talk about more ways to become a financial badass in future episodes.
