Apologies for the sound quality on this episode.
Tinyiko shares a great concept of how a budget is simply the first step in fixing your finances and sorting out your future. What she says is that the first step is that you get to a point where you are comfortable with your finances, and that is by using a budget. Once you've mastered that, you can move onto the savings. And once you've got that working, you can start investing. Don't rush the journey!
