We have a special guest on today’s show, my best friend and wife Lisa stops by to discuss money and marriage. In our two plus years of marriage we have been DINKS, a one income family, and now a family with a stay at home mom. Lisa and I discuss how we managed our finances throughout those stages as well as how we discovered we were both savers and how nerds and free spirits can get along financially.

The following articles and podcasts are about money and marriage and are relevant to the show:

Getting out of debt is such an incredible experience that takes a lot of intensity and focus. Afterwards you reach your goal you can kind of feel a little bit let down and get back into bad habits. After paying off your debt we recommend building a full emergency fund, saving for purchases, starting to invest for your retirement, and paying down your mortgage. The thing you have to remember after you become debt free is to enjoy your money! There is a reason why you sacrificed to become debt free, so enjoy the financial freedom that being debt free allows.

Once you get to the point where you can think about saving for those purchases that you have put off to get out of debt, I recommend using the setting goals spreadsheet that we have developed. It can be quite overwhelming at first to prioritize your wants. But the spreadsheet helps break down those wants into short term and long term wants and helps prioritize them by forcing you to figure out how you will save up and pay for each one. You can find other helpful tools on our free financial resources page.

It has happened to us all at least once. Maybe it was with co-workers, or while out with some friends, or even sitting around the dinner table with family during the holidays, but we have all gotten into financial disagreements. Some are innocent disagreements while others are knock-down, drag-out fights, but the question is how do you deal with people who disagree with you financially?

There is no right way but today we discuss some ways of getting your point across when you are in these situations. Sometimes you just have to agree to disagree but the key is to remember your motivation for why you are doing what you are doing and do not take advice from “He said, I heard, and everybody says”.

On today’s show I review the New York Times Best Seller book Quitter by Jon Acuff. Quitter is about working your day job while developing your passion and finding your dream job. What does this have to do with personal finance you might ask? In my experience working a job or creating a business that you have a genuine passion for will create more income over the long run then working at J-O-B that you absolutely despise.

Working with clients I have run into many cases where people are working jobs they hate just so they can pay their monthly bills. Essentially they are slaves to money. But once we get their finances straightened out they are free to pursue work that they love and are excited for. It is our human nature to say "I will do work that I love when . . ." but the problem is we never actually do it later! What Quitter does a great job of doing is sharing how you can pursue your dream job while continuing to work your day job and make the transition over time.

Also, if you are in the Central Ohio area, please remember to plan on attending the Cash, Credit, College, and Career course part of the Great Recovery on I-70 series starting on September 13th. I am looking forward to meeting everyone there.
