Dave’s secret to success is, “Make a conscious effort to live within your means.”

Dave’s overall philosophy is Flexibility. Realizing you aren’t going to get everything perfect and just doing the best you can.

“Yes! It would be too ironic if I answered no. However, budgeting doesn’t come naturally to me. ”

Find out the tools that Dave and his family use to stay on track.
