by Shannon Marie

Whether you’ve got a lot, or a little, ‘tis the season for money worries to bubble up.

If you’re plopped on the sofa in new jammies, sipping your brew from a new self-heating mug, and reading this blog post from a shiny, new device, I’d wager a guess that there’s also a new thought stirring in your head:

Maybe the egg nog and cookies aren’t completely to blame for your queasy stomach, and maybe, just maybe, it’s time to get serious about your cash. The holiday magic is fading—and you know what’s waiting—the tab.

You Need This Book!

If you need a burst of budgeting inspiration to cure your post-shopping blues, you’re in luck. You Need A Budget, Jesse’s new book, is hitting the shelves at bookstores near, far, and online, TODAY!

You’ll want to make room on your coffee table for this book, a book that will pay for itself (many times over) with a wealth of inspiration and guidance about putting your money to work for you. Don’t just take our word for it.

Inside, Jesse offers:
