Quick — when I say the word “money,” what’s the first emotion that comes up for you?

If you said fear, guilt, uncertainty, anxiety, stress, or shame, you are NOT alone. 

According to a recent study, 90% of Americans feel stressed about money. And a whopping 40% admit to taking “no notable steps to secure their financial future.”

That feeling of helplessness will sabotage your happiness, self-worth, relationships, and health — if you let it.

Trust me, I’ve been there.  

When I first started my business, I was up to my eyeballs in debt. I thought I’d never crawl out from under the embarrassment and shame. But I’m telling you — once I made the decision to face my finances and take control of my future, everything changed. 

That’s why I’m so excited to introduce you to today’s MarieTV guest, Kumiko Love, aka “The Budget Mom.” She’s helped millions of people take control of their finances and live a life they love — on a budget they can afford.

Her brand new book, My Money My Way, is a step-by-step guide to creating financial freedom in a way that works for YOU. (Even if it means breaking a few “rules.”) 

This mission is personal to Kumiko. Not so long ago, she was a divorced single mom saddled with $77,000 in debt. Now, she runs a successful business coaching others to manage their money, and lives in a house she paid for in cash.

If your relationship with money isn’t what you want it to be, watch this episode now. You’ll learn:

  • The heart-breaking $1.09 wake-up call.
  • What REALLY creates your money anxiety — and the key to freedom.
  • The crucial first step to take control, especially if your finances are in chaos.
  • How the “sinking funds” strategy can break the cycle of debt. 
  • Two budgeting tools that take your real life into account.
  • One question that’ll transform your relationship with money forever.
