Lately, I’ve been going through it, just like many of you. 2023 has thrown everything at me, from life stuff to financial struggles. But guess what? I got sick of myself moping around and identifying with the struggle. I’ve found myself a mantra that feels like I’ve hit reset on my year – Enter the Milhouse Mindset!

This week I’m grooving into another solo episode, looking into eight low-effort ways to enhance your finances without much hassle. We all know life’s a bit rough these days. Whether it’s dealing with the cost of living or just bracing for the unexpected, it’s been one heck of a rollercoaster. But guess what? We’re in this together, and I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve to make it a bit easier. So, grab your coffee, give this episode a listen, and get ready to upgrade your financial game. I’d love to hear if you try any of these tips, and remember, it’s all about making money work for you, not the other way around.

Episode highlights:

  • Work on identifying and updating your financial values to align your money with what matters to you,
  • Focus on one high-impact financial improvement at a time,
  • Prioritise action and make small changes to improve your financial situation.

“Where a business would have like a marketing budget and an event budget… for the full year or per quarter, you can sort of do that yourself with your own finances by looking at those zoomed out numbers.”
Emma [15:15]

“When you feel overwhelmed and you don’t know what to do, what you should be doing, what’s the most, what’s the best thing to do? Just pick one thing and put your energy into that. Because doing one thing is always better than doing nothing.”
Emma [19:45]

“What matters to you and how you can align money to improving your life, whatever that looks like for you, that sense of control is immediately flipped.”
Emma [21:36]
