Highlights of today's show:
- Brent Pittman joins us to discuss; if you are rich and frugal do you need to budget?
- How do you know if you are really rich or wealthy?
- Can you become wealthy without budgeting?
- What you could be missing out on by not budgeting?
- What budgeting has meant to us
Brent Pittman from OnTargetCoach.com joins us to discuss a question he asked himself on one of his blog posts. The question was "Do rich people really need to budget if they spend frugally?" Brent and I attempt that answer that question by sharing why we both budget, what are some things you miss out on by not budgeting (which are not all financial) how budgeting could benefit a frugal wealthy person, and finally we share what budgeting has meant to us.
Also we discuss what makes someone "rich" or "wealthy." Is it having no debt? Having a six figure income? A million dollars in the bank? Brent and I discuss what being wealthy means to us and share why there really should never be a point where you don't have to manage your finances.
In addition, if you didn't see it on the blog, my wife and I just paid cash for our recent car purchase! I say this not to brag, but to encourage you that yes, you can pay for a car with cash and it is possible to live without a car payment. The feeling of being able to write the check and not have to worry about putting an extra line item in our budget for the payment is great.
Finally, I'll be doing a webinar titled "YOUR Economy" on Tuesday, November 6th at 9:00 PM EST. Yes, that is election night, but this webinar is not political in nature. Instead we will be focusing on ways to improve YOUR economy not only with your finances, but with your career as well. The webinar itself will be 30 minutes in length and we will have a 15 minute Q&A afterwards. Please plan on attending.
