My Guest on the Show…
One of the questions I get all the time is, “Peach, how did you get your wife on board with your money plan?”
First off – HA! You obviously don’t know my wife…she doesn’t just get on board like that. There was a lot of trial and error, a few hiccups, and in the end we won with our money together.
I bring on my wife Andrea to give you her perspective on:
- What it takes to get on board
- The struggles we faced
- What she did that changed everything
- How much she spends on a dress today vs 6 years ago
- Our “entertainment” monthly budget
- The most difficult thing she faced when climbing towards financial freedom
- What life is like now we are debt free
What you will find in this episode is the raw truth: it wasn’t easy. The number one cause of divorce in North America is money fights and money problems. Somehow we managed to stay married through the ups and downs of our finances, but in the end we are stronger than ever both financially and inside our marriage.
Money truly does touch every aspect of your life…especially your marriage.
