Course overview

Life Sherpa’s Budget Bliss course is designed to teach you how to build and maintain a sustainable budget without depriving yourself of the things you truly love. The course consists of eight transformative money lessons.

#1 Why you need a budgetThis first module is all about understanding budgeting. Why you need one and how the right budget doesn’t have to mean deprivation – we promise not to ask you to give up your morning latte!You’ll discover how a sustainable budget will set you free. Free from having to think every time you take out your wallet. Free from juggling bills and free from worrying how long it is until payday. You’ll learn how your brain makes money decisions and why will power alone is not the answer.
#2 Why traditional budgets fail (and what you should do instead) In this module, you’ll learn why traditional budgets based on splitting your spending into needs and wants don’t work – and instead, look at how spending makes you feel.You’ll learn how to achieve a healthy spending balance that fits within your overall income, and aligns with your goals, values, and stage of life. And you’ll get insights into how the words you use around money reveal a lot about your spending habits.
#3 Where are you at right now?We’ll show you a simple technique to help you review where you are actually spending now and how it compares to the Life Sherpa benchmark.You’ll get access to the Life Sherpa budget checklist as a Google Sheet, so you won’t miss any spending. This spreadsheet also does most of the hard work in analysing your spending (don’t worry if you’ve never used a spreadsheet before – it comes with plenty of support).Then you’ll track your spending for 30 days. Once you know where you are – it’s time to make some manageable changes for the better.
#4 The Big 4 expensesIn this module, you’ll focus on the four things that will usually account for over half of your spending – and how to gain control over these things. You’ll also discover how to afford small expenses by economising on large expenses.
#5 Optimising the rest Now that you’ve got the Big 4 under control it’s time to start optimising the rest. You will learn how to use the Life Sherpa PEARL method to identify leaks in your budget – places that your money isn’t helping you live the life you want as much as it could.You’ll master the exchange rate that matters (hours for dollars) – how much you really make per hour and how to use this to better direct your spending. And we’ll introduce some techniques to manage recreational or impulse shopping.
#6 Emergency StashIn this module you’ll learn why you need an emergency stash – and why it’s the most important element in your financial plan.You’ll learn how to determine if your stash is the right size, and whether it’s being kept in the right place. You’ll also learn why a credit card or line of credit is no substitute for a stash of cash.
#7 Your banking systemThis is the key to making your budget work for you. You’ll be introduced to the Life Sherpa banking system, and learn how setting up your bank accounts the right way will make sticking to your budget a breeze.
#8 Review and reviseIn this module, you’ll learn what signs to look out for that might indicate your budget or spending needs reviewing. You’ll also complete a short exercise to reveal how using credit affects your spending behaviour.
