Some people try to find some well-known methods to solve their problems with debt, and some take an unorthodox approach.

Acquiring assistance from your parents could be something other people may disapprove of. On the other hand, it could help boost morale, aid you in straightening out your finances, and help achieve your goal of a debt-free life.

Family support is the topic of our guests, Staphon and Sheley, on today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show. Listen to the podcast as they share with us a testament to a loving and supportive family, which helped them pay over $70,000 of their debt in as short as 29 months.

A financial frame of mind could be one of the things that people seldom discuss with each other before getting into a partnership or marriage.

In many cases, the financial aspect of the relationship is dealt with long after conjugality has taken place. This could cause a stressful span of time in the partnership once they start dealing with their expenses, income, and debt.

We have Brad Sherman with us on this episode of The His & Her Money Show, to talk to us about how important it is for a couple to get to know each other’s outlook on the aspect of money management.

Some people take the hard road to get to the finish line the soonest, but many lose heart along the way.

In many cases, debt is not solely caused by acquiring just our needs, but at times could also come out of spending money on non-essential expenses…or what Shanny and Steve call it, “the stupid thing.” Getting rid of debt also calls for sacrifices and changes in a financial disposition that many people are often reluctant to embrace.

Shanny and Steve are with us in this episode of The His & Her Money Show, as they talk about how changing their lifestyle helped them pay off their debt, and also how the process helped them change their frame of mind in regards to their money. They also share how working for Uber played a role in their achievement of debt freedom.

Shanny and Steve started off with about $23,000 debt when they got married. Finding an apartment under $1,000 in California—an arduous feat—gave them the drive to come up with the means to achieve a debt-free life. There were hesitations and setbacks on changing their mode of living, but Shanny and Steve learned from their mistakes and evolved, and decisively came out with an enhanced and debt-free life.
