Many years ago my husband and got married and drowned ourselves in debt. It’s something I am not proud of but what I am proud of is that we got out of debt, decreased our expenses and somehow were able to both quit our jobs to pursue our career and business goals. This did not happen overnight. Today I am going to walk you through some of the beginning budgeting basics we learned in order to decide whether we could quit our day jobs and actually make a living with our business. So if you are considering quitting your day job and doing your starting your own business, this episode is for you!

Take care of your money and it will take care of you. Get on a budget and work to get out of debt. The more you track coming in and out the more you will receive. Don’t ignore your current financial situation.
