Strengthen your family tree. Live financially free.
The Marriage, Kids and Money Podcast is dedicated to helping you strengthen your family tree and live financially free. This weekly show delivers interviews from young millionaires, debt-free parents and financially independent couples so you can learn the strategies for financial success. That way, you can give your young family the best life possible.
As young parents, we can easily lose our identity. If we’re not feeding, clothing and cleaning up after our children, then we’re at our full-time jobs grinding away trying to pay the bills.
Where is the “me” time?
When do I get time for my hobbies and interests?
That’s what I’m exploring today with my special guest, Mark Bovair.
Mark is a single father of 3 who hails from the great state of Michigan (like me). Personally, I really enjoy his conversations and perspective around fatherhood, balancing work with a pursuit of your passions and discovering who you really are.
I’m all about giving my kids the very best in life. That all starts with equipping them with the ability to provide for themselves in the future. Basic financial literacy is a great place to start.
Given that 78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, according to CNBC, it is incumbent on us as parents to start the financial education process early so our kids will have better lives than we do.
There’s no one better to talk about these elementary (and crucial) math skills than Paul Vasey. Paul is the founder of Cash Crunch Games. This is a series of games for kids that teach money habits that will help them not live paycheck to paycheck and truly win in life.
More and more Americans are embracing the side hustle lately. The massive amount of debt in our country is forcing people to get a second or even a third gig to make ends meet.
But what if you start to really dig your gig?
Maybe you see this gig turning into a real “grown up” business …
How can we leave our 9 to 5’s and pursue our new passion while still providing for our family?
I’ve invited two guests on the show today that will help us answer this very question. Tom and Ariana Sylvester are a married couple that not only raises children together, but they also build businesses together.
They run a coaching business called Lifestyle Builders where they help everyday people build their lifestyle through entrepreneurship. Also, they own a liquor store, invest in real estate and still have time to be present parents to their two small kids.
When you truly take control of your money and achieve financial independence, doors start to open up that you never thought were even possible. As a parent with young children, this new-found freedom and opportunity allows you to enjoy more time with your kids and make life long memories together.
The Physician on FIRE is my guest today and he is a perfect example of this type of family financial success.
When it comes to marriage and money, sometimes we need a third-party to help us enhance our relationship. This person can mediate a dispute or simply give us some guidance on communication techniques we haven’t tried before.
To open us up to this new world, I’ve invited Kiné Corder on the show today. As a practicing psychotherapist, Kiné supports couples with navigating the intricacies of marital finances. She’s found that a truly wealthy marriage is only possible when the relationship is as strong as the bank account.
The dating scene can be rough when you’re financially conscious. Your priorities of saving and investing might be the complete opposite of your potential date’s priorities of spending and living for today.
As a wise man once said though, there are plenty of fish in the sea. If you keep at it, you’ll find your match.
I’ve invited two guests on the show today that know all about love and money. Gwen Merz and Erik Tozier found each other one year ago based on their love of financial independence and personal finance. These two personal finance gurus have combined their money superpowers and become a stellar couple.
$1.5 Trillion … That is how much Americans owe in student loans.
This truly disgusting situation is holding back Americans from being the best they can be.
How can we solve this national crisis that is affecting 44 million people?
My guest today is dedicating himself to answering this question. Adam Carroll is an author, keynote speaker and documentary filmmaker who is focusing his financial literacy junkie status directly at this student debt crisis.
According to Student Loan Hero, the average student debt for 2017 graduates is close to $40,000. And our nation’s total student debt is now hovering around $1.5 TRILLION!
I want to do everything in my power to protect my kids from this colossal disaster.
To help calm my nerves, I’ve invited Pam Andrews on the show today. We’re gonna chat about how she helped her son earn $700,000 in college scholarships. Pam’s son can now attend college and graduate completely debt free … and then some.
