This section covers the absolute fundamentals of budgeting. It is a thorough introduction to the course and by the end of this section you should be confident about what a budget is and how it is going to help you.
Getting a goal
Goals are a huge part of the budgeting process. People regularly think that budgeting is purely practical act, but anything involving money is emotional too. But we can leverage our emotions and use them for good.

You budget is not a static, unmoving object. It is alive and should evolve with you over time. I'll show you exactly what I mean in this section.
