Go From “I hate budgeting” to Consistently Planning, Successfully Budgeting and Saving Money Every Month With the WISE Budget Box

Money does not buy happiness, but financial stability and security sure bring peace of mind.

Having enough income to cover bills and maybe treat yourself is not enough. You deserve to be able to go on a vacation and still remain prepared for an emergency.

You deserve to be able to help aging parents and still be able to handle all bills and an emergency easily.

You deserve to be able to give your family the best life and set your children up for future financial stability AND still be financially stable and secure.

A budget is an important tool for achieving your financial goals. However, it can be hard to design successful budgets AND actually use them.

It is much easier to stay laser-focused for a 90 day period than a 12 month period. We’ve noticed that people will fall off using a budget within three months.

That’s why I created the WISE Budget Box to help you successfully budget and move towards financial success.

The WISE Budget Box will give you a motivational jolt and a new set of tools every 90 days. You’ll ALSO have continuous access to the WISE Financial Fitness portal to access all the courses, protocols, and digital resources.

"Working with Dr. James was incredible. She was very knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. She helped me create a budget and strategies for my money. I was able to significantly decrease spending and save a lot more money. Dr. James helped me increase my credit score by over 100 points. We added tricks to decrease overspending and keep my financial goals top of mind. After working with Dr. James, I consistently stayed in budget, saved money and was able to purchase a home. I regularly recommend people work with her."

What it's like to work with The Money Scientist:

Before participating in an Elite Strategy Session with Dr. James I did not have a plan on how I was going leave my full-time job and become a full time entrepreneur. In my session with Dr. James we got clear on my mission statement, we set up 30 and 60 day goals and got clear on how much money I want to make a month to feel comfortable as well as the initially things I need to do to start that process. One of the first two things were to recognize that I am an expert at what I do and to charge accordingly for my expertise. During our call I had a big Aha moment, which was I had to work through some blocks that kept me from raising my prices. Dr. James gave me some simple, but effective strategies to work on for the next 60 days to work through the blocks. I left the call feeling empowered and with a plan that I could implement on my journey to becoming a full time entrepreneur. In fact, I was soo impressed with the call that I highly recommended a couple of my entrepreneurial friends contact Dr. James. Thank you Dr. James!
Before having a conversation with Dr. Maria, I was running around like a headless chicken, I knew I had to get things done, I just did not know in which direction to turn. I felt extremely frustrated and overwhelmed at the same time. I needed help and quick! Dr, Maria, supported my vision for Trinidad Mogulista and guided me on how to achieve my goals for 2016 into 2017. Within the hour and half, I felt like a great weight was lifted and I am now able to focus on the bite sized tasks at hand. I am forever grateful to Dr. James because I know how costly one on one coaching is, so having this service does not go unnoticed. Thank you again Dr. Maria James!
Before participating to a Strategy Elite Session with Dr Maria James I knew exactly what I wanted but did not have a clear plan on how to get there. Due to this session, I was able to promote my soft launch the right way by applying her advice which not only raised awareness for my upcoming company but truly optimized my self confidence also. Also, I left the session with a clear to do list that will benefit my business in a tremendous way. I would say Dr Maria James is a true expert when it comes to knowing our ultimate goals and creating a step by step strategy to get to where we want to be. This session resulted in a clear strategy to achieve my ultimate goals not only in my business but also in my personal life. Killing it in every aspect!

About The Money Scientist

I am Dr. Maria James, The Money Scientist. My PhD is in Cellular and Molecular Medicine. I used the skills I honed in the laboratory and being a Director of Finance of a nonprofit to found of Pocket of Money.

I was able to really hone my techniques and skill sets with managing money. I applied them in my personal life with great results. I saved over $10,000 while was on a stipend in grad school of about $23,000 after taxes. I did this while still paying all cash to travel domestically and internationally.

I was also able to use my savings to start my business. Financial success is really about the techniques not only about how much you have. More money plus the right techniques means faster financial success.

I am the creator of WISE Financial Fitness. I have 14 years of experience building and managing businesses as well as personal finance systems. I have built systems that help businesses make $1 million in 12 months.

I also have helped clients decrease overspending by thousands of dollars per month and save thousands of dollars I love sharing the knowledge that has worked for me and has worked for my clients with others so we can all move towards financial success.
