Season 2
55m | Apr 29, 2024

What do you do when you're ready to budget and send money to goals but your spouse isn't? Today's episode is with Rachel Parker who is a wife, a mom of two, and a teacher's assistant. Rachel and her husband realized that they needed to clean up their finances in a big way. Now they're working through building a realistic budget and learning to stick to it. So what can we do when one person is more motivated than the other?

Rachel and I chat about:

  • Committing to stay on the same team even when your priorities are different
  • Finding ways to celebrate your progress as you work toward long term goals
  • Deciding on incentives that will get both people excited about sticking to your plan
