Money plays a vital role in our lives. We spend a lot of time earning money, but most of us aren’t as intentional about keeping it.

This is where budgeting comes in. You may wonder “Why do I need a budget? How can it benefit me and help me grow my money?”

In this episode, we are joined by Jesse Mecham, Founder of You Need A Budget. Jesse talks about budgeting, his four rules to a successful budget, why everyone needs a budget, and the importance of a budget plan.

Jesse also touches on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and how he managed to grow his money through these four rules. Listen in and learn about a new way of looking and thinking about your money to help you make the best decisions for yourself.
