So helpful!

The three hosts are so relatable without being shaming. I honestly felt like I could do this just because they tell stories from their past, and they made it out, so I can too. They also share small successes as well as big, so the success stories you hear aren’t unobtainable!

mooseandstella ,

Motivating!!!

I used to listen to Dave Ramsey, but would not be as uplifted and motivated as listening to Debt Free Dad.
When people we’re giving their debt free screams, it would feel so far away for me.
Now when listening to the shout outs and little victories of people in the midst of paying down debt, it feels like I’ll get there. Because I know that those people are out there. Fighting the good fight!!!

JimHohl ,

Great balanced advice

Just discovered this podcast today and listened to a few episodes — and will definitely listen to more. So far I’m loving the host’s style and point of view.

The episode on renting vs buying a home was particularly resonant for me since I’ve always rented and enjoyed the freedom it provides. Nice to hear that viewpoint represented.
