Show Notes:

Hello, and welcome back to 2024, marking the beginning of a new year. As we reflect on the past and present, I encourage you to consider the importance of organizing your finances and ensuring a positive cash flow. January serves as my personal reboot period, a time to refocus and re-motivate myself. It evokes memories of the back-to-school feeling, reminiscent of a new backpack filled with fresh supplies, like the invigorating scent of new markers.

For me, January is a month filled with excitement, a time to initiate a new financial plan for the year ahead. It involves cultivating awareness and conscientiousness about our financial matters, maintaining organized records, and fostering a healthy, non-toxic relationship with money. These aspirations are universal and can be pursued at any age or income level.

Effectively managing your finances is not only beneficial for the present but also serves as excellent preparation for retirement. Regardless of your current life stage, taking control of your finances can be empowering and, most importantly, instill a sense of well-being.

Now, let me share my perspective on the term “budget.” Personally, I find the word cringe-worthy and have replaced it with the term “cash flow.” Unlike the negative connotations I associate with “budget” — reminiscent of scarcity and restriction, much like the term “diet” — “cash flow” carries a more positive vibe. It represents the money flowing in and out of your household, allowing you the power to control and direct it as you see fit.

Instead of focusing on budgeting, I encourage you to consider managing your cash flow. Money is a tool meant to be utilized, and understanding your cash flow provides you with the ability to direct it where it matters most.

If, like me, you view the new year as an opportunity to reflect and organize your finances, here are a few tips to enhance your cash flow. While not a definitive guide, these suggestions can set you on the right path:

  • Prioritize spending on things that truly matter to you, eliminating unnecessary expenditures.
  • Establish savings buckets for significant goals aligned with your values, whether it’s a vacation, sabbatical, or pursuing a hobby.
  • Implement a regular maintenance routine and a simple 10-minute check-in to keep your finances on track and maintain a positive mindset.

These three tips serve as a starting point. If you’re eager for more guidance and organization, I’ve curated something special for you — the “Get Your Money in Gear” course. This course acts as a warm hug for your finances, offering five on-demand video modules and meditations, all under 10 minutes each. It includes digital worksheets and templates for practical application, ensuring you stay on track without feeling overwhelmed. For a limited time, the course is available for $97.
