What You will Learn
There are two courses, together containing 50 lessons (5 hours and 42 minutes), that will give you all you need to create and maintain a spending plan as a natural part of your life. Each lesson contains an audio and text.
Please note that the online course is free, but you can optionally purchase a print or Kindle version of the book and a download of all the audios for offline listening.
Course #1: Create Your Spending Plan Foundation
In this course, I gently walk you through the process of creating your foundational spending plan. Together, we overcome the emotional roadblocks and fears that have kept you from moving forward in the past, and slowly and incrementally piece together your spending plan.
By the end of this course (within one to two weeks if you follow my instructions), you will have a complete spending plan foundation, and you will understand how to bring your spending in line with your income.

I’m Susan B., a recovering compulsive spender. My expertise lies in working one-on-one with other compulsive spenders to overcome the fear of looking at their numbers, walking them through creating the foundation for their spending plan, and providing technical training to teach them how to work with their spending plan and use budgeting software.
I've created a 54 episode podcast about recovery from compulsive spending, where I share my experience, strength, and hope to help you on your journey. Now, I’ve also created a a complete online budgeting training program that contains everything I teach in my one-on-one training.
If you want help creating or maintaining a spending plan, this training program is for you. Even if you already have a spending plan, the training will be a helpful refresher and will likely provide you a with new perspectives and tips. The Fearless Budgeting Training Program includes the exact same process I’ve successfully used with my one-on-one students since 2010.
