The His and Her Money Show

Today's guest for this episode of the His & Her Money show knows ALL about that. DeShena Woodard used to be in debt - lots and lots of debt. And even worse, she didn't know what to do with it. First of all, she had a limited view of money.

Growing up, her parents put in the hours, but somehow her family stayed broke - from the looks of it, going to work just meant paying the bills and that was that. So, she followed the rule book: college and career. But ironically, college was when Deshena officially started her debt spiral.

Now they're living 100% debt free and today, DeShena runs a blog called Extravagantly Broke where she's empowered to help others find their financial grip and kick debt right out of their lives - just like she did!

For this episode of His & Her Money, the topic is faith: keeping it alive within our families and helping our kids of all ages better understand God. Our guest is Scott James, a rockstar dad of four and a pediatric surgeon. So far, he's written two fantastic biblical books for kids and parents and he's here to break down his latest, Where is Wisdom? A Treasure Hunt Through God's Wondrous World.

Scott is an Elder in his church and devoted to spreading the spirit of God, building up that faith in his own kids, and providing tools and encouragement for other parents to do the same. He talks about his writing process and the inspiration behind WHERE IS WISDOM, as well as laying the groundwork for "faithful plotting" and a practical approach to teaching your kids about God, simply and effectively. Scott's words are so important today, so we hope you're taking some notes and leaving this episode feeling inspired!

Today on the His & Her Money Show, we're talking with Pongee Barnes: wife, mom, and real estate investment rockstar. Pongee and her husband have an impressive real estate portfolio, and even more than that, an impressive outlook on life with their two young boys.

In this episode of the His & Her Money Show, Linda Gartz joined us live for some conversation about something that's a little bit less talked about: redlining. Whether you've heard of it or not, redlining was once a hot topic in segregated America. As Linda describes, if an African-American family - or, to a lesser extent, other races or nationalities - moved in a neighborhood or even an apartment, the entire neighborhood would be suddenly ineligible for loans.

Linda breaks down the history of redlining and her own experiences, reflecting on the aftermath of Martin Luther King Jr's assassination in her own childhood neighborhood and bringing forward the parallels between then and now. The Fair Housing Act ended official redlining but it's still so relevant in today's climate, and this is a chat you will NOT want to miss.

Back in the day, Terrie thought she knew what success looked like: going to college, settling into a career, and work, work, work. Then she realized there was so much more to her AND the opportunities life had to offer. It took a few years for Terrie to get the entrepreneur itch, but once she did, she was on a mission, overcoming obstacles and discrimination to design her own dreams and start setting up those goals to achieve them. Now Austin is following in her footsteps, putting in the work and hustling hard towards a promising music career and as many businesses as he can start along the way.

On today's episode of His & Her Money, we were so happy to link up with a couple from our Smart Money Couples group for a conversation about debt freedom. Christy is an elementary school teacher living in Qatar with her husband, and most of the debt she brought into their marriage was student loans.

Several reasons pushed her towards paying off her debt, mostly her faith, and also the opportunities she realized she was missing out on. Initially, debt held Christy back from her dreams of being a missionary, and even after getting married, there were things the couple still struggled to do.

And that's when it was time to hustle!

A sizable amount from a savings account and a small amount of money from a lawsuit settlement were the two methods that our guest today used to pay off her $62,000 debt in a little over a year.

As Byron and Sharnice lost their jobs and needed a reliable source of income. Byron had tried real estate investing a few years before but was never able to make it a good profit.

Then one day, Byron heard a podcast about a very interesting real estate investing opportunity with very low cash and didn’t require having a perfect score.

That opportunity was investing in mobile homes.

Today’s episode features another couple’s debt-freedom journey...with a twist. Like all of the other couples we’ve interviewed, Brad and Tara worked together to conquer a mountain of debt. The difference between Brad and Tara’s story is their path toward debt freedom. 

This couple’s debt-free journey included two full-time jobs, a profitable side business, two kids, a death in the family, and a move to a new home.

If you’re ready to hear how this couple conquered over $180,000 in debt in a little over two years while running a business and two full-time jobs..and came out on the other side more appreciative of the “ordinary life”, you don’t want to miss out on this episode.

Brad Finn is a physics teacher and owner of a profitable small business (brewery) who was earning a 6-figure salary. After realizing that he was losing money on his expensive lifestyle, he followed his wife Tara on a debt-cutting journey. You can find out more about him on his website, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter  

Tara Finn is also a teacher, Mom, Crossfitter, and marathoner who inspired and supported Brad through a debt-free journey to conquer a 6-figure debt and turn it into financial freedom. You can find out more about her on Instagram

Whatever you do in life, is a God giving feature and a blessing. That is the message Jordan Raynor preaches to the public and those who are willing to listen.

Benjamin Franklin stated, “Be a Jack of All Trades and a Master of One!”. It is inevitable to be a ‘Jack of All Trades’ or to have many skills and talents, however, it is often that we are not a master of a single skill or talent within our arsenal.
