Debt kills the dreams of so many people and often wreaks havoc on relationships, too.  

A recent study showed that 80% of Americans are living under a stinky pile of debt. 

But here’s the good news: You can get out from under it and live a fun and full life if you have a financial plan. 

In this episode, I talk with Rho Thomas, an attorney, and financial coach, about the birth of her first child and how it sparked her family’s journey to get out of $670,000 of debt. She talks about how managing your mindset and money to reach financial independence is a form of self-care. Rho also guides you on the words to use to get your partner on the same page with money and what will keep you motivated and on track with reducing household debt.
