This is seriously my favorite part about personal finance, the chance to help others get on a budget, get out of debt and reach their financial goals. I love showing the power of a well-thought out budget plan and the long term results it can have. I really want to convince everyone to get on a budget, even Jeremy from Modest Money (yup, totally calling you out, dude ;) ).

  Caution: Budgets Ahead! (Photo credit: 401K)Here on iHearBudgets, my goal is to help people see how awesome budgets really are and how they provide freedom to tell you money where to go. This site was born out of a passion of mine to help people get out of the day-to-day stress of living paycheck to paycheck and not seeing any progress in their finances. I love to talk personal finance and really anything related to money (except politics). If you stop me in the street and ask what I think about 401k's, you better have a Snickers bar handy because it'll be a while! Something I've … [Read more...]
