Budgeting For Budget Haters by Adam Hagerman

Budgeting For Budget Haters

Learn how to make a budget you're going to stick with and get on the right financial path, once and for all.
What if your budget actually worked FOR you and not against you? 

What if that same budget could help you achieve your most important financial goals and help you achieve financial freedom? 

Well, I'm here to let you in on a little secret: your budget can do just that. 

Now, I imagine you're laughing right now, but I'm being completely honest with you. It's 100% true. 

Now it's time for YOU to be honest.

Have you said any of these things before?

  • "I've tried budgeting before, but an unexpected expense always gets me off track. Just when I think I'm getting ahead, I'm right back to square one. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong."

  • "Budgeting is too restricting. I feel like I can't do anything anymore. You only live once, so I might as well spend all of my money on the fun stuff. Things will work out one day."

  • "I just don't have time to budget. There's too much going on in my life and I'll get to it when I have more time."

  • "Things will be better once I make more money (or win the lottery, or get that inheritance, etc.). That money will solve all of my problems and managing money will be much easier."

  • "I've done well so far and have no debt, so I don't see the need for a budget right now. I'll make adjustments later if I have to."

Is your jaw on the floor right now?

Are you muttering to yourself, "How does he know that's what I've been saying to myself?"

Well, it's because I've heard almost every excuse in the book and quite frankly, every single one of those quotes above are lies.

Check out the sample lesson below and find out why.

The Lies You're Telling Yourself About Budgeting

Want to know what it's like inside the course? Check out this actual lesson on the lies you're telling yourself about budgeting! 

Oh, and yes, I personally selected that freeze frame for the video.

Over the course of a year, I meet one-on-one with approximately 300 individuals and families to talk about their personal finances.

Can you guess how many of them LOVE budgeting?

You guessed it.....ZERO!

I've heard all of the grumbles and I imagine you're no different.

Budgeting isn't fun. But you know it's necessary. It's a crucial part of a sound financial plan.

Whether you make $25,000 or $250,000 per year, you can easily spend it all if you're not careful.

But how can you build a budget you'll stick with while avoiding all of the grumbles I've already mentioned?

Well, that brings me to why you're here.

I want to teach you how to build a better budget. One that will catapult you toward financial freedom.

In this course, I'm going to show you how to....

  • Gather the right information needed to create your budget
  • Set S.M.A.R.T. financial goals
  • Avoid the debt/savings roller coaster
  • Create an annual budget and plan like you've never planned before
  • Budget for periodic expenses
  • Budget in the fun stuff and incorporate guilt-free spending
  • Budget with a variable income
  • Prioritize debt repayment
  • Use budgeting software to make budgeting MUCH easier
  • Talk money with your honey
  • Set up your budget so it requires low maintenance
  • ...and MUCH more!

In addition to everything listed, I'm going to give you access to all of my fill-in forms and even show you how to use them. These will definitely help make the budgeting process easier!

I'm literally giving you everything I've created and taught on budgeting.

Worth Every Penny

Financial Coaching

(a $2,000 Value)

If you wanted to work with me one-on-one and cover everything in this course, it would cost you $2,000. I'm serious. With this course, you can get all of the right information, delivered in the right order for a fraction of that cost. 

Financial Forms

(a $500 Value)

This course contains close to a dozen custom handouts, spreadsheets, and calculators. You even get on-screen instructions on how to use them! That's worth at least $500, probably more.

Private Group


Sometimes your success is determined by the support system you have in place. Purchasing this course gets you access to a private Facebook group where you can get encouragement from others just like you. That's priceless. 

60-Day Money Back Guarantee

I truly believe that if you put in the work, this course will help you build a budget you'll stick with. However, if you work through the materials, complete the forms and you're still struggling, I'll be happy to provide you a refund within 60 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for? Will I benefit from it?

If you've struggled with creating and/or sticking to a budget in the past, this course is for you. It's not just for people that have debt, live paycheck-to-paycheck, or battle with spending issues. As you'll quickly find out in the course, I think budgeting is for everyone. Even you. This course is designed with everyone in mind. So, if you don't have a budget, you need to get one ASAP. This course will help you do just that.

Is this the magic pill?

Nope. There's no magic pill here. Topics in this course are available somewhere out there on the World Wide Web if you're willing to do all of the work. However, this course will easily pay for itself as it's designed to help you work on the right things at the right time and provide you with the support you need to succeed. You're not able to Google that.

What if this course doesn't help me?

I truly believe that if you put in the work, this course will help you build a budget you'll stick with. However, if you work through the materials, complete the forms and you're still struggling, I'll be happy to provide you a refund within 60 days.

How long will I have access to this course?

How does FOREVER sound? This course is self-paced which means you can take it at any time and in any place with an internet connection. You can take it once or multiple times over.

When was this course last updated?

This course was last updated in October of 2018 and will continue to be updated on an as-needed basis. Plus, if you purchase the course now, you'll receive all of those sweet updates for free.

Is this course mobile and tablet friendly?

Yep. This site is fully responsive so feel free to view it on your cell phone, tablet, PC, Mac, hologram machine, etc.

How long will this take? I don't have much time.

When it comes to managing money, slow and steady wins the race. This course is designed on that saying. My goal is to have you spend a few hours per week in the early parts of this course. Then as things begin to come together, you'll need to spend less time maintaining what you've created. Just remember this - your finances will be around forever. You need to commit some time to managing them every week.

I don't live in the US. Will I still benefit from this course?

Absolutely! While there are times throughout the course where I discuss the US Dollar, all topics can be applied to your situation no matter where you live in the world. The software I recommend for monthly budgeting can work with over 60 different currencies. However, you would need to manually update transactions as the import feature only works in the US.

It's a no-brainer if you want to...
