The His and Her Money Show (general)

There are few things we champion more than taking up a good side hustle. Whether you're paying off debt, saving up for that dream vacation, or even just looking to profit from a new creative outlet, there are countless ways to generate extra income. And the best part is, sometimes your side hustles can turn into something so much more! Walking dogs, teaching yoga, graphic design...these can all be transformed from passion projects to lucrative businesses, but one of the most popular and profitable side hustles is starting a blog. We know you've heard about this before, and you might still have your doubts. So keep listening!

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, things are about to get interesting! We've brought on a great friend and an even MORE amazing blogger, Rosemarie Groner, to share her experiences in the blogosphere and tell us all about her incredible success story. When Rosemarie started her blog, The Busy Budgeter, she had an idea of what she wanted her end goal to be but, just like you, didn't know if she'd succeed. And in 10 months, her readership and income blossomed into a full-time income and beyond, and now she's making $100,000 a month! We'd call that a success!

Of course, blogging wasn't the first career Rosemarie envisioned herself having. She was a state trooper for 9 years, but as a wife and mom, due to her crazy unpredictable schedule, she knew she didn't want to do it forever. And when she started a home daycare center, that didn't work out too well either. There had to be a way to replace her full-time income, and suddenly, she found it in a random email for a blogging course. From there, Rosemarie enrolled in Elite Blog Academy (a His & Her Money favorite!), and this was just the beginning. It was a lot of work and dedication, but as her blog grew and grew, Rosemarie realized she was building a six-figure business - as a stay-at-home mom, no less!

Find Rosemarie at BusyBudgeter.com, and join her in taking the blogging world by storm!

Debt is nothing new for the average American. Car loans, consumer debt, student loans, and all other types of debt have fast become another piece of day-to-day life, for students, singles, couples, and families all across the country. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it doesn't seem like it. Living the American lifestyle doesn't have to mean living with debt, and if you can motivate yourself to push and stay on the right track, you could be well on your way to smashing YOUR debt once and for all.

 

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Maya Lewis is joining us for another fantastic debt elimination story. Maya is a Maryland-born project management analyst, self-proclaimed Excel spreadsheet queen, and debt-smashing superstar. Over just two years she single-handedly paid off an incredible $73,000, and this is how she did it!

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Ruth Soukup is stopping by! A few years ago Ruth was on the show to talk about her new book, "Living Well Spending Less", and we're so excited that she's here again to share her incredible entrepreneur journey to success, and how she's extended her blog savviness to helping others! Ruth's course, Elite Blog Academy, is dedicated to guiding aspiring bloggers just like you get their blogs up and running. Ruth might be a seasoned million dollar blogger now, but just like anybody starting out, it wasn't always smooth sailing.

Back in 2010, Ruth and her husband were trying to get on the right financial track. They were also constantly butting heads over money, and as a stay-at-home mom of two small kids, Ruth needed a creative outlet that didn't involve overspending. That was when she launched Living Well Spending Less, where she started documenting her couponing efforts and organizing tips and tricks for friends and family. She didn't expect much would come from it until the couponing craze hit in full swing and suddenly her blog was shooting up on Google's ranks. Ruth thought she was crazy (and so did her husband!), but as the blog grew, the potential was obvious - it was time to get serious, and the rest was history!

Get inspired at EliteBlogAcademy.com!

  • Keeping content fresh and being prepared to change lanes with the trends
  • How Ruth built her million dollar blog from the ground up
  • Different ways to make money from your blog
  • Affiliate marketing vs. selling your own products
  • Setting personal goals, and why it's important for success

Just because everybody's doing it doesn't mean you have to follow the crowd. You know exactly what we're talking about: student loans, and the long-term affects of living with them. Your financial freedom largely depends on what you're bringing in and how much is going right back out; by paying off your loans as soon as possible, you're drastically minimizing the paycheck to paycheck cycle, and your financial future will be totally up for YOU to decide!

 

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we're thrilled to have Gary here with us to share his incredible debt-free journey. Gary is a blogger and IT professional, and once he was swimming in student loans. But not anymore! With hard work and determination, and a few pretty big sacrifices along the way, Gary put his money smarts to the test straight out of college and cut his $60,000 debt down to nothing in just three and a half years!

Sometimes it's hard enough to manage your money when you're an individual, but as a couple, your finances can feel like a much bigger responsibility. It can also be a struggle if debt is holding you back, and the stress of living paycheck to paycheck can put a strain on your relationship. But through openness, communication, and unity within a marriage, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Here at The His & Her Money Show, we're all about marriage, family, and anything in between - and smart money couples are at the top of the list!

 

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we've got Alex and Cassie from TheThriftyCouple.com over to talk with us about money, marriage, and of course, debt destruction! Once upon a time, they were a whopping $108,000 in consumer debt - credit cards, student loans, and beyond. None of these expenses were too shocking alone, but together, they added up!

There’s nothing new about student loans. They’re everywhere – in fact, most Americans leave college with student loan debt. But does that mean you have to go about your life with thousands of dollars holding you back? Of course not! Paying off your loans may not be as daunting as you think – with drive, focus, and smart money practices, the road to your total debt payoff could just be a budget away!

On today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show, Taylor from TheGroundedEngineer.com is stopping by for a chat about finding financial independence, personal finance management, and how he and his wife paid off $97,000 in student loans in 9 and a half months! Taylor is a blogger with an electrical engineering background, and he hopes to help others start their own debt free journeys and develop smart money habits.

Most of the time, good money management doesn't come to us naturally. Knowing where your finances stand, and most importantly, how to handle them, is a learned behavior; that being said, it can also become second nature pretty fast, and the best way to form smart money habits for the long-term is to educate yourself as well and as often as possible. And we get it: sometimes that's easier said than done. Where do you start? Why are there so many numbers? But by finding a way to stay focused, motivated, and yes, interested, taking control of your financial life might turn out to be a lot easier than you think!

 

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we've got a great one for you! Financial guru, educator, and motivational speaker Ash Cash is joining us for some eye-opening conversation and to get into some of the details of his latest book, The Wake-Up Call: Financial Inspiration From 4:44 + A Step By Step Guide On How To Implement Each Financial Principle. We've been fans of Ash since the very beginning of His & Her Money and bringing him on board is an incredible opportunity for all our listeners to get a taste of all that he has to offer!

Here at His & Her Money, we love to talk about finances. But we also LOVE to talk about marriage and family life. Everything in a marriage is shared, including the finances - and everything that comes with them. Sometimes both sides come into a marriage with debt and financial baggage, and maybe it can seem easier to just let it go and carry on. But eliminating debt can be a massive weight off your shoulders, whether you're a couple or an individual, and it's never too late or too early to get the conversation started!

 

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Javier Gutierrez from DreamerMoney.com is here to share his incredible journey to debt freedom. When they got married, Javier and his wife Taylor had a combined debt of over $34,000, and soon they realized that neither of them wanted to foresee carrying their debt around for much longer. Listen in to find out how they got in the zone and destroyed their debt in less than two years!

Here at His & Her Money, we're not just a financial podcast. Not only are we avid counselors of marriage and family (and everything in between!), but we're also very conscious of faith. It's a huge part of life and can come up in all aspects, from business to everyday moments, and whether you have lifelong dedication or have just recently opened your heart to God, we're always excited to spread the conversation.

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we're so lucky to have Touré Roberts joining us for a great discussion on faith, business, and prioritizing your life. Touré is a Los Angeles-born pastor and entrepreneur with a passion for helping others and promoting "wholeness": the pursuit of being complete. He's just released his brand new book, Wholeness: Winning At Life From The Inside Out, and today he's giving us a taste of what's in store. Touré is a wealth of information and wisdom and has so much to say on worship, prayer, and how to apply them to become the best version of yourself that you can be!

Most people don't often think about getting rid of their debt as soon as they get out of college. Student loans are fast becoming the norm, but just because everyone has them, that doesn't mean you have to keep them! The thing is if your goal is to destroy your debt before it completely takes over, that often means living frugally. This might not sound like the most glamorous lifestyle, but if you can achieve financial freedom as soon as possible, it's worth it in the end!

 

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Lily He-Prudhomme from The Frugal Gene is coming in to tell us all about her debt free journey. Lily is a blogger, full-time Airbnb host, and an incredible resource for learning about how to start your own debt free journey. She and her husband are also on the path to creating generational wealth, and we can't wait for you to hear all about it. At one point, Lily was splurging on a pizza from Costco; now she and her husband are putting away $100-150,000 a year in savings and living completely free of debt!
