Ep. 172 — Getting Married With Six Figure Debt

On today’s show, we have a truly inspiring story to share. Leo and Faith were about to get married when they attended pre-marital counseling at their church. It was then that they were encouraged to sit down and get honest about the finances and their goals as they started a family together. In total, they carried over $211,000 worth of debt — a combination of both student loans and credit card debt.

Rather than give up, they rallied and made a plan to aggressively tackle their debt in the summer of 2017. Faith, a nurse practitioner, took on a part-time job working overnight 5 or 6 days a week. Leo, an occupational therapist, also worked a part-time job in addition to his 9 to 5.

In a little over a year, they successfully paid down $100,000.

They share their story on today’s show. Tune in and hit us up on Twitter or Instagram let us know what you think about their story!

Ep. 171 — “So Money” Podcast Host Farnoosh Torabi on How She Juggles Family and Her Financial Empire

We’re thrilled to FINALLY welcome Farnoosh Torabi to the show. She’s the brilliant mind and cohost behind the So Money Podcast, author of several books on financial empowerment books and a forever entrepreneur who’s launching a new venture this spring (and, oh yeah — a mom of two!).

That new venture is called Stacks House, a “pop-up with a purpose” that seeks to empower women to take their finances by the horns and start building wealth.

Farnoosh gets real about how motherhood helped her double her income as an entrepreneur and how she manages the daily grind of work and raising two kids under the age of five.

As mentioned on the show, check out Farnoosh’s recent column on Refinery29: “This Is The Secret To Being A Successful Working Mom”.

Note to listeners: We had a slight issue with our audio this week, so apologies in advance for one or two small areas where you’ll hear an echo.
