If you’ve ever felt like budgeting just doesn’t work for you, my guest Kumiko Love can relate. Frustrated by traditional budgeting methods, she created her own technique to pay off almost $80,000 of debt in eight months. And this technique helped launch her business, The Budget Mom.
A few years ago Kumiko was struggling to pay down her debt. As a single mom, she knew that she needed to get out of the cycle of making minimum debt payments each month, but she had tried and failed to stick to a budget numerous times. So, she created a method that she could actually stick to. She calls this her Budget by Paycheck method and as she was using it to get out of debt, she started a blog to share her journey. That blog has now turned into a business that just launched its first physical product, the Budget by Paycheck Workbook™.
