I have the privilege of welcoming guest Elle Martinez to the show to discuss her new book titled Jumpstart Your Marriage & Your Money.

I wanted to have Elle on the show because her podcast is great and I couldn't wait to pick her mine on a topic that most of will face at some point in our life, if we haven't done so already, and that is money and marriage.

51womDBRUHL.jpgIt was a blast interviewing Elle and I could have asked her questions all night, but some of the topics we discuss included

  • How Elle and her husband got on the same page financially
  • Why couples struggle with money so often
  • The importance of focusing on your "Why" and not the "What"
  • What Money Dates are and why they are important to take
  • How to have the hard conversations with your spouse on money
  • What motivated to write her book
  • What she learned about couples and money through years of podcasting and writing the book

Elle's book, Jumpstart Your Marriage & Your Money, will be released on June 13th and can be found on Amazon.

In addition I recommend you subscribe to Elle's podcast, Couples Money, if you haven't done so already.
