Have you ever wondered why Do It Yourself (DIY) shows are so popular? According to a Country Living article, “There’s a before, during and after in one TV show—so, you basically get to the happy ending very quickly.”  In other words, your renovations might take weeks or months (or, God forbid, years), while Chip and Joanna’s Gaines home makeover requires less than an hour of your time. And in the end it looks perfect, unlike what you may have experienced.

Is budgeting one of the most dreaded tasks in the realm of business – or do some of you find it exciting?  In my experience talking to CFOs, accountants, and other finance team professionals about the budgeting process, I haven’t gotten anything but a tightening of the facial muscles, a tensing of the body, exasperated sighs, and anecdotes of the tedious procedure of piecing together an effective plan for how a company is going to spend money for the upcoming year.
