The Cheerful Budget Program

You make a good salary but you can't seem get ahead. All those big money goals still seem so far away.

The heavy burden of debt and unfulfilled dreams is really starting to wear you down. The thought of spending another 5-10 years struggling like this breaks your heart. You're tired of letting money influence all of your big decisions.

You're not sure why it's like this, but you're finally ready for a change.

Ready to let go of the struggle and stress around budgeting.

It's time to have some fun.  And save a sh*tload of money. 


Enjoy life while taking control of your finances

It’s time to stop struggling and start joyfully saving.


What do I know about achieving big $$ goals? A lot, actually.

In 2012, I started with just $1,500 in my bank account and a dream of quitting my corporate job. Over the next 18 months I saved more than $40,000 and took off for a 20-month career break. And I had fun while doing it!


It might sound a bit crazy, but I proved it wasn’t a fluke - in early 2015, I decided I would pay off the last $42,000 of my MBA loans. Even though I’d taken a 25% pay cut for a job I really wanted, I managed to pay off all my loans within the next 22 months.


what makes the cheerful budget so great?
