Humans can be funny, we know what is right and good for us but find it difficult to do. Budgeting is one of those right things that many of us of don’t do. Some reasons can be: we don’t understand how money works, we feel it’s too difficult and most often it’s our habits.
We’ve become accustomed to blowing money fast and end up asking ourselves “Where did all my money go?” “I don’t even see what I spent all my money on,” “I can’t believe my money has finished so soon,” etc. Even when we wise up and try to budget, there are some mistakes we keep making and that’s what we’re going to be discussing in this week’s blog post.

For today’s blog post we’ll be looking into how we can live bolder lives. Let’s gooo!

Many of us try to do a 360 turn around in our lives in a short period of time and make a million and one changes and/or commitments only to give up on them after the holiday high is over i.e. give or take 2 weeks to a month if I’m being generous.
