Budgets and Cents
About This Show
Budgets and Cents is a weekly podcast co-hosted by Cait Flanders (formerly Blonde on a Budget) and Carrie Smith (Careful Cents). In the past few years, the two have paid off nearly $45,000 of debt, gotten rid of most of their belongings and quit their jobs to work for themselves - all of which they write about on their blogs.
Cait and Carrie have discovered that not being weighed down by debt and clutter gave them the freedom to try new things and live the lives they wanted. If you change your money, you can change your life - it’s that simple. New episodes come out every Tuesday, and topics include budgeting for your life and business, embracing minimalism, working for yourself and more.

BONUS - Community Over Competition
In this special bonus episode, we clarify what community and competition mean to us. For starters, we believe it's important to remember that being part of a community is different from networking. It's about fostering a feeling of wanting to contribute versus simply focusing on what you can gain from your network. In some cases, the people within your community could be competition. But if you view them as part of your community, it opens up space for honest conversations to happen, relationships to develop, and new opportunities to come together organically. As part of this, we also talk about why it's so important for community members to share how much they charge, what clients pay, who is hiring, etc. It's all about paying it forward and sharing the wealth. The more we share, the more we can all earn! At the end of the episode, we talk about what to do when someone does feel like a competitor. And if you listen closely, we announce the new name of the podcast! The new season (with the new name/design/website!) will launch in January 2018.
