    In this episode, we explore how tipping has transformed over the years.

Bringing Joy and Happiness

Chris and Ericka are the best. They say we learn from role models. For those of us that didn’t have parents that openly and lovingly talked about money Chris and Ericka are the next best thing. Love listening.

Love this energy!

This couple has such great energy! I’ve always appreciated Ericka’s energy, but discovering Chris as well has been so cool. I love finding married couples that have been doing it well long term, and this couple is absolutely that. They have great conversations that can help illuminate other parts of your personal finance journey as a couple. Highly recommend!
