Budgeting That Actually Works is a course that is only found in the Ramsey+ membership access. It is not included with the FPU membership or EveryDollar Premium access.
So, what is it? It’s the course that coordinators have been asking for, and everything your class members possibly need to know about budgeting - all in one place.
How is the course different from Lesson 1 in FPU?
Consider this course a deep dive into budgeting. Your members will find answers to all their questions around creating, and more importantly, sticking to a budget. But the best part? This course provides need-to-know info on how to budget based on your current life stage—because budgeting isn’t always one-size-fits-all.
Is the Budgeting That Actually Works course part of the FPU curriculum?
No. Similar to The Legacy Journey or Smart Money Smart Kids, the Budgeting that Actually Works course is completely optional. But mastering budgeting is a key part of the journey to financial peace—so encourage your class members to watch it!
Members will stream the Budgeting That Actually Works lessons on their own, meaning you won’t need any new resources for future classes. No new DVDs. No new Leader Materials.
