To celebrate the release of my brand new National Best Selling book - My Money My Way: Taking Back Control of Your Financial Life, I am continuing a six-day Mini-Lesson event. Every day for six days, I will be sharing some financial building blocks from my new book!

Are you ready to start transforming your finances?

Today's My Money My Way Mini-Lesson is all about financial awareness. Not just recognition, but decision-making awareness (don't worry, I'll go over what this is in the lesson today!)

To get a daily mini-lesson reminder, make sure you turn on notifications and subscribe to my channel.

Let's start a new financial journey - YOUR WAY!

Day 2: My Money My Way Mini-Lesson: Financial Awareness

1. Understand your starting point.

2. Track Your Spending.

3. Use the highlighter method to organize your expenses.

Your Homework:

1. Manually track your spending for an entire month. If you don’t want to wait, pull out all of your statements from the previous month.

2. Using different highlighter colors, highlight “like” transactions. For example, highlight all of your food transactions in green, all of your gas purchases in yellow, etc.

3. Add up all of your highlighter colors for each category. For example, add up all of the yellow purchases, and assign that color a budget category name. Add up all of the green purchases, and repeat.

4. Write down one thing that surprised you about your spending.
