1086: The Budget Mom on How to Erase $80,000 of Debt in Eight Months
If you’ve ever felt like budgeting just doesn’t work for you, my guest Kumiko Love can relate. Frustrated by traditional budgeting methods, she created her own technique to pay off almost $80,000 of debt in eight months. And this technique helped launch her business, The Budget Mom.
A few years ago Kumiko was struggling to pay down her debt. As a single mom, she knew that she needed to get out of the cycle of making minimum debt payments each month, but she had tried and failed to stick to a budget numerous times. So, she created a method that she could actually stick to. She calls this her Budget by Paycheck method and as she was using it to get out of debt, she started a blog to share her journey. That blog has now turned into a business that just launched its first physical product, the Budget by Paycheck Workbook™.
