    #13 Carmel's story: Money & relationships - rebuilding financial trust after a partner leaves you in serious debt

    #13 Carmel's story: Money & relationships - rebuilding financial trust after a partner leaves you in serious debt

    In this episode, Caroline talks to Carmel Dickinson about being left £20,000 in debt when her fiancé at the time defaulted on his loans. And how it made her much more determined to talk about money in her relationships.


    Many people find it hard to talk to their partner about money. Yet if you are sharing financial responsibilities - for a house, children, or bills - it is essential that you are able to have open, honest conversations about money with your spouse or partner.


    Today's episode is a cautionary tale on what happens if your partner takes out loans that are secured against your jointly-owned house. How that leaves you potentially liable for those loans if your partner defaults on their payments.

    #12 Clare Seal: A real life story about paying off debt, taking control of your finances and looking forward to the future

    #12 Clare Seal: A real life story about paying off debt, taking control of your finances and looking forward to the future

    In this episode, Caroline talks to Clare Seal of My Frugal Year on Instagram, about her journey to paying off £27,000 worth of debt and her excitement about being in a position to look forward and create more positive financial goals for her and her family.


    We talk about the deeper causes of debt and financial difficulty. How the first step to dealing with debt is to really look at the numbers in detail, and to separate it from yourself and see it simply as a problem to be solved, not as a judgment about you.


    Plus her excitement at being close to paying off all her debt, and how her next financial goal (which Lifetise is helping her achieve) is a positve one - buying her first home.
