The money episode of the “Trailercast” podcast with @Elysesnipes_collective is available for download!
This is my first podcast I have ever done, and I’m honored it was with Elyse! She is a breath of fresh air! I’ve seen her speak several times at various events, and I really enjoy her podcast. She speaks truth, wisdom, and she has a gift of making you feel comfortable, and at home. I’m hoping that this podcast will start an intentional conversation about money, your beliefs and values surrounding money, and the freedom and possibility of becoming debt-free.
Some of the things we talked about:
*Our journey paying off $266,000 of debt and why it was hard AND transformational.
*How money can be seen as a tool to achieve your financial goals, and not an obstacle.
*The importance of having an accountability partner.
*The importance of having a budget, why they are fun & not constraining, and how budgets provides clarity.
*How everyone’s debt-free journey will look differently, and why it’s important to do what’s best for YOUR family.
*Difficult money conversations.
*Why we never told anyone how much debt we paid off until fairly recently (We finished paying off our debt 6 years ago).
*Why I was thankful for our debt-free journey, to have the opportunity to work more, and how it gave me a different definition of gratitude.
Most importantly, I hope that people realize that anyone can become debt-free. Being in debt doesn’t have to be a lifetime sentence. It also doesn’t have to be a dismal, boring, debt-free journey. It can be whatever you want it to be.
