Awesome Podcast

I started this podcast at work driving 11 hours a day this week and am on episode 45 already. I’ve learned so much and feel encouraged to finally knock my debt out with the snowball method. I’ve moved money around instead of having all my money in my checking account giving myself the false sense that i have money to waste, plan to switch to cash more often, set weekly reoccurring deposits to savings account, and plan to sit down with the spouse and get everything on the table and get a good plan going! Thanks for all the good info and inspiration!

Zero help

I listened to four episodes waiting for one helpful tip or advice. Waste of platform.
