You may or may not know this, but Brian was my first ever interview on my podcast!
One of my goals for creating it was to encourage couples to work together with their finances. Money can be a huge source of stress on a marriage, but it can also be an opportunity to grow.
When I read his story about killing over $100,000 of debt, I knew it listeners would appreciate the motivating story, but also learn and get ideas on how they can tackle their biggest financial problems.
Dumping Debt Together
Besides Brian, I’ve had others come on the show and share their stories about build their wealth together. Many of them had to overcome the mountain of debt they had accumulated.
While the general course was getting out of debt, each couple had to navigate a path that reflected their values, personalities, and struggles.
One couple who comes to my mind is Toni and her husband. They paid off almost the same amount of debt as Brian and his family (about $107,000) but had an entirely different challenge. They both wanted to get rid of the debt, but they couldn’t agree on the process!
