Society has taught us that living the American dream is owning things that add to life’s comfort and indulgence. What’s rarely mentioned is that to live the American dream is to be free—and that includes financial freedom. When you think about it, how much money do you have in total after selling your assets to pay off your debt?
On today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show, we have Yuriy Mayba to talk to us about how he and his family survived paying off over $200,000 of debt and still managed to end up with a quarter of a million dollars in the long run.
Yuriy achieved what many people see as a commendable life story: Coming from a foreign land at a young age and built his life towards successful business management and income…at the price of being in debt.
Yuriy then realized that he and his wife cannot move forward to a different chapter in their lives without paying off their debt first. With faith in God, discipline, and humility, and using all his skills to get through struggles of survival, he is now savoring a better direction in life and with a stronger relationship with his family.

Having a large family combined with a large amount of debt can be a scary thing. But having the right strategies and the attitude to tackle financial problems head-on can conversely, cause a positive impact on your family.
It is important for a couple to share their own strengths and weaknesses, and use them to tackle family situations because after all…marriage is a team.
Many people have the “time is of the essence” mindset, and more often are disheartened when they realize it’ll take too long to be debt-free.
In hopes of helping our audience out of this ineffective conclusion, we interview Carrie Willard on today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show, to show us how she managed to become debt-free despite having a large family.

Motivational speaker Tony Gaskins once famously said, “If you don’t build your own dream somebody else will hire you to help build theirs.”
This quote applies to millions of people who are working in jobs they hate all while racking up extreme amounts of debt trying to keep up with everyone else or fund their American dream. In the eyes of many, debt is unavoidable, expected, and even welcomed.
Today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show is all about getting out of debt and into financial freedom. We talk with Anna Runyan who shares her journey of how she and her husband were both able to pay off an enormous amount of debt, leave unfulfilling careers and build a successful business they could be proud of.

Rarely is a couple's argument one-sided. Even though money is one of the arguments that come up again and again, many times, money fights really aren't about money.
On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we interview Cora Hietpas to talk to us about how to handle the dynamic of merging marriage and money successfully.
It is important for a couple to recognize each other's core values surrounding money. In many cases, values in money are different from each individual but are rarely talked about before and many years after committing to a relationship.
Cora emphasizes for couples to express their values in money as early as possible, in order to resolve any upcoming issues.
Cora also teaches us how to deal with complications if your spouse's value in money is different from yours. She believes that there has to be a coming-together, a compromise for each partner to lean-in toward one another, to get to that middle ground, and to reach a happy place for everyone.
