Burning Money series is designed with the understanding that students have different learning styles and schedules, allowing them to work at their own pace on each episode. One of the most critical aspects of the series is the “Spending Journal assignment,” which requires students to track their income and expenses for seven days at the beginning of the program.

This real-life data collection serves as the backbone of Module 8 and becomes a valuable teaching tool throughout the entire Burning Money series. To ensure that students have adequate time to gather this information, scheduling a seven-day “Burning Money Break” after the first session is essential.
