The Truth About Managing Money As A Couple

Does even the thought of managing money together make you want to break out into a sweat? There’s no perfect science to managing your money as a couple. Don’t fear though, we’re having an honest conversation about the truths of managing your money as a couple.

It takes time and effort on both parts to avoid conflict and, as I say, play to your strengths when the money topic comes up as a couple.

  • Find out how we work to avoid conflict and how to work through the conflict when it comes up
  • Learn about some common trends with couples and money

Dealing With Debt Roundup

It is true that there is good debt and not so good debt….but for the most part, we generally don’t like debt. I totally get it. Debt can limit your ability to do a ton of things that you really want to. It can be any debt too – credit cards, student loans, car loans, mortgage, etc.

When you deal with debt you need a good strategy to get rid of your debt. We're dishing some tips to help you supercharge that payoff and put more cash into your wallet.

On This Podcast Episode:

We’re going to talk all about debt – in particular, credit cards and student loans. Next Advisor came out with a great article highlighting credit cards that are offering 0% interest until 2019. That’s crazy talk! A low-interest card is a great way to supercharge your debt tidal wave payoff strategy.

…and those student loans. The Student Loan Report is dishing on the best and, ahem, worst student loan servicing companies in this great article. Why does this matter? Well, it can come in handy when you’re dealing with your student loan servicer and try to figure out if you refinance or not. More information when it comes to finances is always good information, even it’s not fun information.

Investing That Makes an Impact – Swell

Socially conscious investing has been on the mind of many of our listeners over the past few months – i.e. my email has been blowing up lately about this topic. The idea that investing can make an impact seems almost too good to be true.

I was so excited to find Swell, a company that is devoted to just that – impact investing and not only the chance to do good but also for good returns.

In the past, it has always seemed that you had to make a choice. Either you could invest in social conscious funds or you could invest in funds that would offer a good return. Thank you Swell for offering us both.

On This Podcast Episode:

  • I chat with Swell CEO and Founder, Dave Fanger about why Swell and why now
  • We discuss the trends in impact investing
  • Why Swell is devoting itself to 6 key socially conscious areas
