Money, finding a job, even fashion (yes, I need help in this department) requires a bit of guidance. When it comes to even thinking about your money sitch, worrying thoughts might be clouding your judgment.

“Dave Ramsey says, ‘Live like no one else, so later you can live like no one else.’ You’re telling me I gotta wait three whole years until I take a vacation? What if I died in a car crash tomorrow? That’s what makes Budget Bootcamp different.”

Julia, San Diego

“Working with Justine has been a truly eye-opening experience! Justine practices tough love and has a no-nonsense approach to budgeting. As someone who has never had a true budget, working with Justine has actually made budgeting FUN and has made my goals seem more attainable.  She understands that there are things that I’m not willing to cut out of my life but has helped me allocate my spending in a way that allows me to have the things that are important to me but also ensures that I’m saving along the way.”

Rebecca, Washington DC

Here’s what you get

60-minute introductory call

We meet virtually using an online conference line (or call in if you’re old school). Our first call helps us establish what’s going on in your finances and what you need help with. All calls are private and confidential.

3 monthly budgeting calls

For the next three months, we’ll hop on a 50-minute virtual conference line to go over your month’s income and expenses and goal setting for the next month. 

Online budget building

Together, we’ll build a budget on Google Spreadsheets that you can stick to and I’ll guide you to make smart money choices. Yes, that includes bar money and permission to vacay!

Actionable debt-free goal setting

We get to the bottom of your money goals. What do you love spending money on? What do you hate spending money on? We’ll tackle all of that and come up with a short list of your must-haves to keep you focused.

Bonus! How to Control Your Spending workbook is included!

When you sign up for Budget Bootcamp, you’ll also receive the How to Control Your Spending workbook digital download. The workbook has more than 50 pages of actionable content that we can use right alongside your Budget Bootcamp plan.

“My work schedule has me traveling a lot, so it was hard to figure out where my money was going. Justine was so easy to talk to and helped me pulls the reins on my restaurant budget so I could focus on bigger financial priorities. I’m so thankful for the clarity!”

Want to learn how to eliminate debt and live a YOLO life from someone who paid off $35k in student loan debt and now lives debt free in sunny San Diego?

By the age of 25, Justine Nelson had paid off $35,000 in student loan debt making an average of $37,000 per year. Grit, discipline and a motivation to kick debt’s ass for good helped her achieve this goal within two and a half years. Now, she’s sharing her strategies and tips with fellow millennials on how to get out of debt, budget without the bitching, and ultimately change your financial future. Millennials work too hard to be broke all the time and credit card companies and banks are feeding lies about the way millennials should live. A Kansas City native, this Midwest millennial broke out of debt’s chains and now resides in San Diego, California with her husband living the DINK life (Dual Income, No Kids).
