How often have you told yourself that you'll start over next month with budgeting and saving money?
6 months? A year? More?
I'm not going to lie...I've been there too!
I know what it feels like to have zero control over your money. I know that you're struggling to actually FOLLOW THROUGH on the budget you wrote. I know that you're sick of living the paycheck to paycheck life.
And let's be honest....you're a smart person. You know what it takes to save money. You know what it takes to stick to your budget. All you have to do is live on less and be disciplined.
But it's hard. All you want to do is pick up dinner because it's easier than cooking after a long day of work. All you want to do is take a family vacation even though you know you can't afford it. All you want to do is say "Forget the budget! I'm going to live my best life!"
When we started taking back control of our money, we had to learn how to write a budget. This wasn’t an easy task, but you know was even harder? Learning how to stick to the budget we wrote.
I struggled so much when it came to changing the way we interacted with our money. I struggled with changing the way I saw money. And I struggled with finding peace and happiness with what we already had.
Basically, I had a hard time with being content. I didn’t see it back then, and it took me years to put what I was feeling into words. But I always wanted more.
And yet, I fought that feeling. I woke up each morning and told myself that I didn’t have to spend money to be fulfilled. I didn’t have to wander the aisles of Target to have a good day.
Look, I know that you've blown your budget in the past. I know that you might have planned to send money to savings or debt and you ended up splurging at your favorite store...AGAIN. I know that there are times when you haven’t set money goals even though you know deep down that you should be.
I know all this about you because you and I are alike. And I know that I’m not the only person that struggles with sticking to the seemingly perfect budget you wrote.
But guess what…that’s okay. Let’s forgive ourselves for our past money mistakes. Let’s learn how to see those past failures and lessons we can learn from. Let’s give ourselves grace and know that those experiences don’t define who we are.
Let’s start fresh. Let’s start new.
Somewhere along the way, our paths crossed.
You might have reached out to me and said…Hey Allison, I need help setting up my budget. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to make it work.
Or maybe you said Look, I struggle with overspending and I can’t seem to gain control over my money.
And to that I say…I'm here. I’m ready to sit down with a cup of coffee and be your accountability partner. I’m ready to help you get organized and stick with a plan. I know you might know how to start...but I'm here to help you with the hardest part...living out your budget.
The Inspired Budget Inner Circle is...
❖ Live Q&A's once a month where you can ask me anything! You'll leave feeling inspired to take on your finances and get them under control.
❖ Monthly and weekly challenges to help you stay on track and hold you accountable with your money!
❖ Weekly text messages that will encourage you to stay on track!
❖ Free printables that will force you to finally get organized with your finances.
❖ Exclusive videos that will teach you how to stay on track with your budget even if you are a self proclaimed spender.
If we haven't met then let me introduce myself. My name is Allison and I'm a coffee drinker, Target lover, and the World's Okayest Mom.
Soon after my husband and I got married, we found ourselves pregnant and realized that we couldn't possibly afford an $800/month daycare payment. Our spending habits were out of control and we had over $111,000 worth of debt (and no, that did not include our house).
Having a baby on the way forced us to step up, stick to a budget, and tackle our debt. Just over 4 years later we paid off ALL our debt on just two teacher salaries.
Want to know the cool part? We are not the exception to the rule! What I mean is that if we can do it, you can too!
I'm here to teach you how to stick to your budget so that you can reach your financial goals (whatever they may be)! Want to pay off debt? Great! Want to travel the world? Great! Want to spend $1,000 each month at Target guilt free? GREAT!
Whatever your goal, I'm here to help you reach it!
What topics will be covered in the Inspired Budget Inner Circle?
Here’s the exciting thing...I have LOTS of ideas for what I want to cover in the Inspired Budget Inner Circle. We will cover goal setting, sticking to your budget, and ways to stay organized with your finances. But here’s the deal...I want this to be beneficial for you. I want you to truly take something away from this group, so I’m open to your opinions! Want me to talk about meal planning and stopping the takeout cycle? DONE! I want you to have a say in the topics so that you can be more successful than you ever imagined.
What will the format be like?
Content will be posted weekly in the Inspired Budget Inner Circle. There will be a monthly live Q&A where you can jump in and ask a question or submit a question in advance. You’ll also have access to videos, printables that I don’t sell in my shop, and content to help you! The format will change each week, and it will consist of videos, printables, and posts.
Do I need Facebook to join?
There will be a Facebook group for the Inspired Inner Budget Circle, but you don’t have to join it. All of the printables and content will also be posted on Thinkific where the actual course will be housed. The Facebook group will be a place where people can share their progress, ask questions, or encourage one another!
How much time will this take?
Look, I know that your time is valuable! You likely have a job, family, friends, and all the things on your to do list. I respect that! Content will be posted once a week in the group. My hope is that you’ll be able to complete the assignments, challenges, or watch the videos in an hour. So that’s it. An hour each week because it’s enough to help you change your life but not too much to overwhelm you.
What if I want to cancel?
This is a monthly membership group, so of course you can cancel at any time. No hard feelings, I promise! But here’s the thing...if you cancel then you won’t ever get this low price again. Would I want you to sign up again in the future if it would help you be successful? Absolutely! But you’ll have to sign up when the doors are open and you won’t be able to go back to the $11/month membership plan.
Does it really only cost $11 each month?
Yep, that's right! You get SO MUCH great content for only $11 each month! And here's the deal...when I open the doors in the future, the price will go up. I can promise you that!
"Not only is it amazing to get tips delivered and be able to interact with others who are trying or are at the same mindset but to know that a "real" person has been through it, lived it, done and succeeded at what she teaches is invaluable. You inspire! Thank you for showing us we don't have to be slaves to debt but live the life we are meant to live."
"The Inner Circle has been exactly what I’ve been needing and looking for! A community of people on the same track, striving for the same goal makes a huge difference. You never feel alone in your journey! And the weekly lessons, have changed my mindset so much! I’m so grateful for the inner circle! Thank you Allison!"
"Allison's encouragement, enthusiasm, and "realness" honestly is what draws me back week to week. I used to be scared of checking my bank account and fear failure. But the way Allison conducts these videos makes me feel encouraged and ready to tackle it knowing I'm listening to a real person who's been there and exudes grace and wisdom. I can now check my bank account daily without having a meltdown- and have looked forward to the weekly videos that give me awesome and practical next steps to keep me feeling like I'm making progress. Her attitude helps me feel motivated even when I mess up - and I'm inspired by how hard she's worked and that it's motivated her to want to help others. Best decision I've made in 2019 was joining inner circle and I'm looking forward to seeing how quickly I can reach my goals with some hard work, Allison, and the Inner Circle Community!"
