LIVE A LIFE OF ABUNDANCE, ON A BUDGET.
"Budget" can be a scary word, at least it was for me and my husband. We had tried to budget several times in the past, but we always felt suffocated or as if our money was tied to some imaginary ball and chain. When we would try to budget, we would feel a sense of guilt if we spent money on ourselves or on anything other than bills and necessities. That's not how a budget should feel, and I am so glad that we gave it another shot after several failed attempts. Now, a budget means that we are able to make every dollar count. We no longer look back and wonder where all of our money went and ask ourselves why we work so hard and have nothing to show for it. We have created a beautiful life on a budget, we have been able to get back to the root of our happiness and find gratitude in all of our blessings big and small. We've created a much different life for ourselves. A life that is no longer filled with stress or anxiety about our finances. A life that is full of experiences and gratitude for the "little things" that fill each day, and a life that is less attached to "things". My hope is to share that with you. To show you a way that budgeting can fit into your life to add a sense of financial control, peace and fulfillment.
I would love to help you create a budget that is specifically designed for you.
This 6 week bootcamp is designed to help you take the first steps in creating a budget and paying off debt. I know how overwhelming it can be to try to create a budget when you don't even know where to start. I am here to help you through those first steps.
- Weekly recorded coaching calls. No live calls to schedule for or attend. Calls will be provided that you can listen to at a time that works for YOU.
- An assignment will be given each week and "homework" will be submitted to me privately so I can coach you personally to answer your questions and make sure you can successfully implement each step.
- Learn how to identify your current spending habits and prioritize your spending.
- Learn how to organize your finances and effectively spread your money out throughout the month.
- Learn how to create a healthy budget, to keep you on track and help you meet your financial goals
- Learn how to create a debt annihilation plan and get out of debt much faster than you would with the traditional "minimum payment" method.
- Learn tips on how to save money on groceries and how to stop over spending.
- Includes access to the private Live.Love.Budget. Facebook Group. This group is an exclusive community for my bootcamp members only, and allows for ongoing higher level coaching + training + resources. Membership in this group continues at NO COST once the bootcamp is over. It is a perpetual membership!
Space is limited to only 10 members. An intimate group allows for more group discussion and ensures I can give members of the bootcamp the time and attention they deserve.
Registration is currently closed and classes will resume in the fall. The next class is scheduled to begin on September 1, 2016.
So thankful to Leticia for offering the Live.Love.Budget. bootcamp! Having a plan and budget in place has helped us tremendously. We know where our money is going each month and it alleviates so much stress about money. The average family simply pays the minimum payment on current loans, while acquiring new ones because that's what we're conditioned to do. This course has taught us to pay extra on the minimum payments, not acquire any more loans, and be completely debt free in 6 years (including our house). The "debt annihilation" method is so simple and so genius! I have it sitting out on the counter so I see it every day and am motivated to be debt free even sooner than 6 years. I will forever be grateful for the knowledge this course has provided me with. Very thankful ♡

Enough is enough. This is what my husband Jason and I were telling each other. We were paying more each month JUST to pay the taxes on our home than most people paid for their entire mortgage. We never felt like we were getting ahead, actually we felt like we were sinking....fast! It was time for a change, not only in our housing arrangement but in how we handled our finances. We had tried to use a budget several times before, however we never really got it to work. It just all seemed so hard. My husband's student loans from his nursing school would be kicking in soon, we didn't have anything in savings and we felt like we were failing our kids. We needed to find a different living situation and start making wiser choices with our money. After several months the house was sold and we had moved into our new home.
Now the hard part....changing our mindset about money and figuring out how we were going to save more, spend less and get out of debt! In walked my friend Leticia on Facebook. She was sharing about a 6-week class on budgeting that she would be doing. Being in Iowa I was sad that we couldn't participate because she lives in California. I told Leticia how I wished we lived closer so that we could take her class because the timing for us was perfect. I am SO thankful that I did!! Little did I know that this class was online and through a weekly conference call!! After mentioning the class to my husband, he immediately responded with a "yes, let's do it!". Going through the class with him was just what we needed. What the class did for us was show that budgeting is actually SIMPLE when you have the steps and it is a positive thing! The hardest part is changing your thinking and doing things differently. Once you decide you aren't going to do what you've always done, things start to fall into place.
After four months of using what we learned, we have now developed a budgeting system that works for us. We no longer have any active credit cards, we paid one credit card account in full, paid two outstanding bills, were able to pay cash for a new dishwasher when ours died AND we have over $1,000 in savings for emergencies. Our kids have learned along with us and have discovered that we do MORE now as a family because of budgeting than we ever did before! Teaching them now at a young age will hopefully help them avoid the mistakes we made with our money and credit card use. This is an unexpected result from our experience! I truly don't know where we would be as a family and financially had we not taken Leticia's class and become a part of the Live.Love.Budget family!!

On our journey to becoming debt free we joined Leticia's bootcamp. She was beyond helpful, knowledgable and inspiring. She not only supplied us with the knowledge that we needed but the spirit and will to follow through with our goals. While helping us to pay off thousands of dollars of deb, she has also taught us to spend our money more wisely and to make better investments. We now see the light at the end of the tunnel and we are looking forward to reaching our 10 year goal!

I have always been a numbers girl, excelled in math classes, made great money... but I couldn’t figure out how to put it all together. I’m the primary income for our family and for many years we have lived paycheck to paycheck and I couldn’t figure out why we had nothing to show for the amount of money we had. I’d considered budgeting a thousand times, printed bank statements, gotten frustrated with how we were spending our money, gotten overwhelmed with excel-type spreadsheets built for budgeting and just gave up. We’ve lived this way for years and years and finally, I discovered Live.Love.Budget and it was exactly what we needed! Leticia went over the top to help me understand the actual process of building a budget. I sent her many messages, to which she always replied. She almost literally held my hand through this process. The class is great because EVERYONE has time for it. If you’re available, you can participate in the live phone calls and if you’re not, you can listen on your own time and Leticia is available any time you need her. There’s also something unexpected that comes along with taking the class, a community of people in the same types of situations to celebrate and encourage you along the way! During the six week class, we successfully paid off THREE AND A HALF credit cards and got a glimpse of our future with no debt! I am so glad that we took the plunge and took this class, I could not recommend it more!
