For most of us, housing is one of the biggest expenses we face each month. Experts suggest keeping housing to 30% of your budget, yet high cost-of-living areas can claim much more.

If you’ve ever wondered exactly what it feels like to be mortgage-free, you won’t want to miss this conversation.
As someone who also prioritized paying off our mortgage, I love to hear other people’s stories about debt freedom. It’s especially important to share these stories, as no two journeys are alike.
Keith Robinson sat down with me to discuss the actual earth-shattering moment he and his family became mortgage-free. In addition to sharing the twists and turns of his debt-free journey in California, he also delivers actionable tips if you want to pay off your mortgage early.

There may not be a single right way to achieve financial freedom, but supersizing your savings is certainly a powerful strategy.
But what does supersizing your savings mean? More importantly, how does someone go about doing that?
I sat down with Kelly Smith from Freedom in a Budget to learn more about how she and her husband are crushing their goals and enjoying their lives while living on 50% of their income.

Plus, she offers actionable steps for people who want to make more money and want to make saving 50% of your income a reality.
Imagine being able to take your side hustle to the next level and quit your full-time job?
That’s exactly what Kelan and Brittany Kline managed to do after working on their blog for over a year. They were able to leave the shackles of their day job and go full-time with their passion project: The Savvy Couple, a blog and community that helps families organize their lives, simplify their finances and unlock the freedom to do more of the things they love.
We chat about how they get into blogging as a side hustle, how they first started making money and their future plans for their business and family.
