    POM052: Why I Don’t Do $0 Zero-Based Budgeting

    POM052: Why I Don’t Do $0 Zero-Based Budgeting

    

    In this episode, I talk about something that some people absolutely love and for others, it’s the bane of their existence. We are going to be talking about budgets, specifically a common concept or piece of advice that is given and why I don’t follow it.

     

    Budgets are crucial to financial success and are a powerful tool. Budgets are not a one and done type of tool. You will have to revise your budget as things change in your life and even as you spend during the month.
