Heidi Harris Show Podcast #194: 1 in 3 can’t make it to payday. We used to call that “budgeting”.

CNBC has a story last week about how 1 in 3 people can’t make it to payday, even those earning over $100,ooo. They talked about how some people can’t get everything they want at the grocery store. Really??? Most people I know have to make decisions about what to buy very week. Steaks? Darn, not on sale. Maybe next week…

The fact is, no matter how much you make, you have to live on a budget. I’ve been through unexpected job losses, so I get it. You have to go into lockdown mode. Some people have no idea how to do that, so they will suffer regardless of how much money they have.

I also realize that the economy isn’t what some would have us believe it is. Regardless of what happens to you, you are responsible for how you react to something.
