MoneySlinger™: When You’ve Had Enough of Personal Budgeting
Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek interview, May 1998
When you’ve had enough of typical budgeting tactics, that’s when you’re ready for MoneySlinger!
(previously called The B Word™)
3/10/15 - You know it! Moneyslinger is cruise control for your finances! Thanks a bunch. – Manuel C.
7/11/14 – Thank you! You have a great product here. I have never used a single program as long as I have used yours. I hit 8 years a couple of weeks ago. – Wesley F.
3/29/13 - Years ago I purchased the B Word budgeting system and it really helped me with budgeting. I still use it today. I had someone at church come to me who is struggling with finances and I immediately thought of the B Word…as I told this person, it is deceptively simple, but very helpful. – Lang R.
12/31/12 - Thank you again for your support. There are very few things I say I cannot live without, and of course I could live without a budget, but without MoneySlinger the process would be so stressful. I absolutely love love LOVE MoneySlinger! – Amy H.
3/12/07 - Lee-Thank you, it is all set up. My wife and I have been using the B-Word since our original purchase (9/05) and would not want to be without it at this point. It really is an elegant system. We extoll the virtues of your system whenever we get the chance and have made at least one convert so far. Best regards, Tom Z.-Verona, NJ
4/25/08 – I am impressed with your concept. I have read many financial books and listen to Dave Ramsey on the radio and have read his book. I think your concept and the All Your Worth concept are the best, most realistic and easiest to implement. – Anonymous, from B Word survey.
We just purchased the software and so far it looks pretty good. It is unique and does appear that it will simplify the process. In fact, it appears to be very, very ‘doable’ and seems to avoid the ‘paralysis of analysis’ !- Mark L.
Thanks, Lee. Yes, actually, as I started adjusting the tracking spreadsheet, it all fell into place. I could see where expenses needed to be in order not to exceed the income I allocated for each session.I’m actually all setup and my wife and I are starting TODAY. Like I said, I’ve been managing our finances…with a lot of crying and agony . Your system has confirmed what I have been thinking for years: “If I could just manage the income and outgo.”Anyway, I really do thank you for such a great system. I’m very excited about starting my new financial life. – Regards, Jerret
7/26/11 - I am a former B-word user. In fact I am still limping along with a semblance of the methodology B-word taught me. Working the B-word way, and more, thinking the B-word way has been the most successful way of managing my finances of the many I have tried. I look forward to getting going again with a fresh renewed start. Thanks, David
This program has helped me stay financially centered and gotten me out of the hole. I have strayed now and then, but I always come back and straighten myself out. It has also been extremely helpful to my children, who grew up with my bad habits and now have to learn a different way. Maureen – from a B Word survey
2/12/06 - Hi Lee, Well, in two years time I’ve gone from total financial chaos to running our family’s finances like a well-oiled machine. Plus, over those two years I’ve written and deployed a lot of software, but nothing as simple and elegant as the B Word. It does exactly what I need and nothing more. Thanks, Mark B. – Arlington, VA
I couldn’t live without this program, wanted to thank you for creating the program. My husband has ADHD and what a mess our finances were until the B word.For once our bills get paid in a timely manner AND in full, and we have started saving and working on debt reduction. We are going to the Keys for vacation thanks to being able to plan easily ahead of time.My friends think my husband got a huge raise last year because now our finances are handled so much better. I have recommended your program to my friends. – Sincerely, Lynni M.
3/21/06 - I want to tell you that I had previously tried Quicken, I have also used the software program from Managing Your Money and the Mvelopes system, as well as several other budgeting programs looking for something that I could not only use myself but also recommend to others in our ministry. As of this date we did not want to recommend any of those other programs because they seemed too detailed and time consuming (“focusing on the trees”).When my wife and I discovered your program it was like a breath of fresh air! It is the best program I have ever seen in this area. In the period of 90 minutes we had all our accounts and tracking set up, and we now know instinctively right where we are at with our finances at all times. Seeing this “big picture” is what was missing with all those other programs. An added benefit is how little time it takes to complete our financial sessions twice a month. So now we have a far better handle on our finances, and I would like to thank you, Lee, very much for an excellent product.” Mike – West Salem, OH
It is so nice to deal with fair and good people. In just two days your program has opened my eyes to many traps of other systems. As you stated, they become a weight around your neck, versus making your life easier.
Kudos to you on your "The B-Word!" After only two sittings, order came from chaos as all of the ideas I have had about "averaging" (I originally called "leveling") found congruence and a home in "The B-Word". Your software even makes it enjoyable to spin the numbers with my wife! After spending literally 20+ years looking for a financial tool, I cannot express how excited I was that I found the "B-Word." I believe the combination of sound, uncomplicated and palatable logic with your well-thought-out software tool is a panacea for the ills and agonizing of others like myself that long to rid our lives of debt and vanquish "El-Budgeteo!"
