Election day is over. All that’s left is for us to send some love to our future selves and hope things haven’t gotten too wild. We’re trying to focus on what’s good. Like the fact that 115 BIPOC women are running for election this year! (8:47). And at least we know where people stand. It’s no longer impolite to talk politics, and honestly we’re here for that. Regardless of what happens in the election, let’s take a minute to breathe, then get ready to get back to work. Because there’s much more to do.

In the meantime, we’re here to answer your money questions! This week we’ll talk about:

  • (20:57) I have about $4,300 of credit card debt between two cards with high interest. Is it a good idea to get a personal loan with a lower interest rate to consolidate that debt?
  • (26:20) – I own 4 timeshares, but now I realize they’re a waste of money. Do you have any good advice for how I can get out of them?
