Everybody knows that habits are hard to break, and that's especially true when it comes to money habits. Whether you're overspending the monthly budget, sleeping on the income you know you should be making, or even just not keeping track of your finances at all, one bad money habit always leads to more, and that's when your financial destruction can start to snowball, sometimes for generations. Breaking the mold is tough, but it's worth it in the end to set a good financial foundation for the present and the future!

On today's episode of The His & her Money Show, we're so glad to be talking with Amir and Candace Shameih about their decision to break out of debt and grab a piece of that financial freedom. This faith-forward couple took the initiative, got their plan together, and set out to eliminate their debt in 18 months...and then they beat the odds and came out debt-free in just 7! Their story is incredible, and we can't wait for you to hear it!

Neither Amir nor Candace grew up in money-conscious families. As kids, they saw the bad side of what can happen when you let the state of your finances fall back as a priority, but even so, for awhile it seemed like they were both on the same path all too soon. Fortunately, history wasn't doomed to repeat itself, and after Candace, the couple truly began to realize their options. Between the two of them, they had over $58,000, from student loans, credit cards, and a whole lot else. They could stay a slave to the lender, or they could take control of their money, bust their way out of debt, and live financial freedom to the fullest. And you can bet they chose the right one! Keep listening to find out how they did it, and maybe learn something along the way!

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

  • Bringing your spouse on board to tackle your debt together
  • Getting into a new mindset to start your budget
  • Some of Candace and Amir's tips and tricks for getting out of debt
  • Cutting monthly costs around the household
  • How to stay focused and not give into temptation
  • Gow faith kept Candace and Amir strong through their debt free journey

Are you looking for a way to get rid of debt? You must be open to possibilities, have the willingness to give up some things and learn new ones, continually updating your knowledge, and possessing the guts to conquer your fears. No one knows what will happen in the future. You have to take the first step towards your ultimate goal, try your best with strategies, and stay focused on your way to financial freedom.

On today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show, we have a very successful real estate investor and blogger, Rich Carey, to share his debt freedom journey and give you some hope and inspiration! Rich grew up fascinated by real estate and still thinks it is the coolest thing to do. Later, he ended up being drowned by student loan debt of $32,000. His wife, who was his girlfriend at the time, encouraged him to be responsible for his obligations and helped him craft a plan to pay off the debt. They did side hustles and started his journey of real estate investing.

Afterward, they acquired a home mortgage worth $280,000. The family decided to live a very frugal life; eating out and having fancy vacations was not on their to-do list during this time. They chose to live on the smallest income possible and put everything else into savings and investments. With the combination of this unique approach and the power of real estate, plus his income from the Air Force, he found his way out from under. The mortgage was paid off quickly in just 6-7 years instead of the standard 30 years.

Rich pursued his real estate investment career despite working overseas. He purchased another rental property in cash to avoid the hassle and flipped it, earning a significant profit. The success of this idea led him to own 20 properties in one location. He proved that a real estate investment is not a nightmare but a vehicle for financial freedom and a more promising future.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

• How Rich shifted his mindset and became motivated to get out of debt
• How he ended up being a real estate investor
• Why he settled his 20 properties in one place
• How he bought 6 properties in just 10 months
• How he continually upgraded his knowledge
• The difference between buying things in cash or creating debt
• The benefits of having investments in one city
• Advice on choosing property managers
• How he decides if it’s a good buy or not

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Bruce and Brenda McGrew are joining us today for an incredible debt-free story of faith, marriage, and making progress where you need it the most. this inspirational couple never stopped. They're both teachers in the public education system, and now they're schooling others around the country on finances, smart money management, and paying off all your debts - just like they did! Bruce and Brenda once had over $58,000 of debt, and now they're enjoying the wonderful world of debt freedom.

When Bruce and Brenda attended their first Financial Peace University class, they were going as moral support for another couple, not for themselves. They considered themselves pretty money smart already so they had no idea how great they'd benefit from the course, and the world it would open for them. But it did!

Six years ago at the beginning of their debt freedom journey, Bruce and Brenda had roughly $58,000 in consumer debt, from credit cards to car loans (and their "eight-thousand dollar blanket"), and they knew they had to get out from under it, and as soon as possible. In the first year of work, they'd already paid off $30,000, and after that, it was time to get even more creative and have some fun with it.

Today, debt-free and living well, Bruce is a certified Ramsey Solutions master financial coach, and this smart money couple loves to share any nugget of wisdom they can with YOU on their website, BruceMcgrew.com!

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

  • The "hybrid method" Bruce and Brenda followed to debt freedom
  • How Bruce and Brenda accidentally got started on their debt-free journey
  • Handling finances as a couple, and the importance of trust
  • Tips for the brand new budgeter
  • Bruce and Brenda's "envelope" method

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we have yet another great debt-free story. Chris from ApathyEnds.com has popped in to talk all about his experience investing, breaking out of debt, building long-term wealth, and reaching financial goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. Right now, Chris and his wife are just $13,000 away from paying off a massive $107,000 in debt, and came out of the process as super savers - that's a big money win-win!

When Chris graduated college, his student loans were divided between five different loan providers. They tallied up to about $85,000 total, with an extra $2,000 credit card debt and a $20,000 car loan that he and his then-fiance added to the mix. No couple wants to be weighed down with financial burdens, and they were no exception. They also they realized that in order to reach their financial goals, they needed to increase their income. So, taking on the task of eliminating their debt was a no-brainer, and essential to getting started on their financial independence journey!

Here at His & Her Money, we know there's nothing more important when it comes to managing your finances as a smart money couple than being a united front. This goes for all things money (and marriage!) related, but it's especially necessary when you're talking about debt. The journey to debt freedom is often full of sacrifices and big life changes along the way - and sometimes even a total lifestyle overhaul - and if you're not on the same page, the back and forth struggle can put a major strain on your end goal AND your relationship. But with dedication, faith, and togetherness, any couple can fight the good fight and come out the other side strong!

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we've got a couple that did just that. Get ready for an incredible debt elimination story. Kerry and Kamille once had over $111,000 in debt, between credit cards and student loans, and it was just getting bigger. Once they truly started feeling the weight, they knew it was time to break free - and just 21 months later, they did! Now they're living completely debt free, and keep listening to find out how they did it!

Right before Kerry graduated college, the couple went on an 11-night celebration trip to the Caribbean. It was expensive, but they figured they'd pay it off over time. It wasn't long after, though, that they both started thinking about how much debt was piling up on their credit cards. It was obvious that eliminating their debt was the next logical step, for their finances and their marriage moving forward, and Kerry was already considering their options when Kamille suggested they go to Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. One class and they were hooked! Paying off their debt became a discipline, and just like anything, there were hiccups along the way - but there was no stopping them. And now, just 21 months later, Kerry and Kamille have paid off their debt completely, and they couldn't be happier!

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

  • Why you shouldn't be content being average
  • When Kerry and Kamille decided to eliminate their debt
  • The importance of accountability and "accountability partner" benefits
  • Kerry and Kamile's faith began their approach to debt freedom
  • Different ways Kerry and Kamille budgeted and saved money
  • How to stay focused and disciplined
