Hey Aerie Fam, Berna Anat here, your Financial Hype Woman bringing you some financial tips to help you get prepared for the future!

Lemme kick you one word: Budgeting. Yep — I lost you at “budg”, didn’t I? 

Budgeting, like so many financial words, is sort of an ugly sound for a beautiful thing. Budgeting is what helped me pay over $50,000 in credit card and student loans, save up to quit my job and travel the world for a year and start my own business. 

The problem is, if you hit the Googles and look up “how to budget” right now, the majority of the money advice you’ll get is… how shall I put this? Hella male, hella pale and hella stale. Even if it’s useful, hardly any of the financial advice feels relevant or interesting to us

But as your Financial Hype Woman and translator, I’ve got you covered. I’ll help you navigate the stuffy language we often hear around money, plus give you three tips to help you start budgeting in the most non-boring way possible. Watch it all now in the video below!  

Did you pick up any new tips or find out something super insightful from Berna’s video? Let us know by sharing your thoughts with the Aerie fam in the comments below!
