Struggling to save for a rainy day? Bajan author tackles budgeting in new book

Twenty-nine-year-old Tara Mayers is the debut author of the book Kingdom Budgeting for Women.

The book which she penned this year was created to help women propel their lives forward.

“Kingdom budgeting for women was penned to share the tool of budgeting with women as a way to propel their lives forward. Even though the book was written for females, it doesn’t exclude males,” she said.

“The information is for he or she who wants to share in this journey. The kingdom aspect seeks to use kingdom principles in a practical way so that we all can see the fruits of our labour.It teaches discipline and sowing seeds. It embraces investments and seeks to charter a new course of life in our finances. It is a must read,” she added.

In a sit down with BUZZ, Tara shared that while she has always wanted to share what she’s learned about money, she never envisioned becoming an author.

Did Tara always want to be an author?

The answer to that surprisingly is no.

“No. Writing was not on my mind in the earlier years as I was more so involved in fashion and design which are my passions. I also own a décor business,” she said.

The qualified educator who holds a Diploma in Education from Erdiston Teacher’s College said one of the takeaways persons can get from her book is how to become better at budgeting.

“The takeaway definitely will be to keep trying at budgeting. It may be hard at first but keep trying. Bit by bit it will get easier, and you will be able to see changes and track improvement. I want women to tell another woman to purchase this book for a young woman who needs it,” she said.

As this book touches on budgeting using kingdom principles. It encourages pray as well  toeach on how to write out one’s budget. It includes how to plan for supermarket trips and how to meal plan. It really is an everyday essential and guide.The writing process was completed in  a year,” she added/
