We talked about Saving and Investing money, now we're discussing how the budgeting process works. I cannot over stress the importance of the budget. It is vital to your financial success. It is your plan. If you do not have a plan you will fail. But, there is hope because the opposite is also true. With a well thought plan you will succeed.
