The His and Her Money Show (general)

Here at His & Her Money, we always champion for couples to be on the same page mentally, spiritually, and of course, financially. Money is a huge part of our day-to-day lives, and when we're sharing our lives with another person. 

It's so important to get those financial conversations started sooner rather than later. And we know it's not always easy -- that's why we always bring you the best of the best to speak on it and get you started in the right direction!

On this episode of the His & Her Money Show, we're talking to the Vinsons! This is a couple who started talking money straight off the bat, and there's no doubt that it's made a huge difference in their lives moving forward. The results speak for themselves: they were once $130,000, and now they're totally debt-free!

In this episode, we are going to introduce you to a concept you might have not heard about and that is investing in mobile homes. This is a method of investing that has a low barrier of entry.

Our guest John Fedro is a real estate investor who has been investing in mobile homes for the last 15 years and he is going to teach us what he has learned from all of his experience.  

At the age of 20, John made his first purchase as a mobile home investor after using every ounce of savings that he had at the time. He hasn't looked back since and in addition to creating his own cash flowing portfolio of mobile homes, he's helped countless others do the same. 

At first, he was embarrassed to tell his real estate investor friends what he was doing, but as he got the hang of the process those same friends ended up giving him more mobile home leads. By the end of year 1, he had 14 properties!

In this episode, he is sharing his story and everything that he has learned so that you can be equipped to make money in mobile home investing too!

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!

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. Check out Linda's book for more and keep the conversation going!

As parents, it's our full-time job to set our kids up for life. Giving them the tools and mindset to succeed at whatever they want to do.

On today's episode of the His & Her Money Show, we've got two shining examples of early business education with Terrie Chantel, aka PajamaCEO, and her son Austin. Terrie is a mom of three who's passed on her love for business and entrepreneurship to her sons. She firmly believes it's never too early to start educating and inspiring our kids through example today, to be even more successful for tomorrow.

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.

Today, she and Austin are spilling their entrepreneur mindsets, hacks, and strategies, and giving us a look in the playbook for getting that fire started at a young age. Parents, get that pen and paper out, and you might even want to grab the kids for this one - it's a ride you won't want to miss!


  • Breaking down the legacy mentality
  • How Terrie overcame her experience with racism in the workplace
  • Various ways Terrie encourages her sons to grow their dreams
  • Feeling trapped in the traditional career path
  • How Austin is utilizing his entrepreneurship skills
  • The how and why Terrie decided to teach her kids about business early
  • Using Poshmark to generate income
  • Terrie's first side hustle
