Change to clever girls and their husbands

I was excited to listen to the first episode I saw which was tips on how to get out of 18k debt until the girl in the episode explained how she was married and lived of her husbands income 🙄. Of course it’s easy when you can live off of someone else’s money and use your own to pay off what you owe. It’s cute ideas for couples but the title is misleading. I won’t be listening to other episodes.

2022 episodes are even Better

I really enjoy listening to this podcasts. It has practical tips and advice. No sugar coding, and No selling an unrealistic lifestyle. Or shaming you about bad money habits. I was looking to get a handle on my personal finances, pay debt and save money. After a year of listening I was able to pay off consumer debt, save money for an emergency and start being mindful of my purchases. Oh and my credit went up over a hundred points! Whether your looking for personal finance/ money advice, debt payment plans, or creating a new business. Clever Girl Knows talks about it all. Just signed up recently for Clever Girl Finances free courses for budgeting, saving & investing.
