The His and Her Money Show

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Ruth Soukup is stopping by! A few years ago Ruth was on the show to talk about her new book, "Living Well Spending Less", and we're so excited that she's here again to share her incredible entrepreneur journey to success, and how she's extended her blog savviness to helping others! Ruth's course, Elite Blog Academy, is dedicated to guiding aspiring bloggers just like you get their blogs up and running. Ruth might be a seasoned million dollar blogger now, but just like anybody starting out, it wasn't always smooth sailing.

Back in 2010, Ruth and her husband were trying to get on the right financial track. They were also constantly butting heads over money, and as a stay-at-home mom of two small kids, Ruth needed a creative outlet that didn't involve overspending. That was when she launched Living Well Spending Less, where she started documenting her couponing efforts and organizing tips and tricks for friends and family. She didn't expect much would come from it until the couponing craze hit in full swing and suddenly her blog was shooting up on Google's ranks. Ruth thought she was crazy (and so did her husband!), but as the blog grew, the potential was obvious - it was time to get serious, and the rest was history!

Just because everybody's doing it doesn't mean you have to follow the crowd. You know exactly what we're talking about: student loans, and the long-term affects of living with them. Your financial freedom largely depends on what you're bringing in and how much is going right back out; by paying off your loans as soon as possible, you're drastically minimizing the paycheck to paycheck cycle, and your financial future will be totally up for YOU to decide!


On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we're thrilled to have Gary here with us to share his incredible debt-free journey. Gary is a blogger and IT professional, and once he was swimming in student loans. But not anymore! With hard work and determination, and a few pretty big sacrifices along the way, Gary put his money smarts to the test straight out of college and cut his $60,000 debt down to nothing in just three and a half years!

Sometimes it's hard enough to manage your money when you're an individual, but as a couple, your finances can feel like a much bigger responsibility. It can also be a struggle if debt is holding you back, and the stress of living paycheck to paycheck can put a strain on your relationship. But through openness, communication, and unity within a marriage, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Here at The His & Her Money Show, we're all about marriage, family, and anything in between - and smart money couples are at the top of the list!


On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we've got Alex and Cassie from over to talk with us about money, marriage, and of course, debt destruction! Once upon a time, they were a whopping $108,000 in consumer debt - credit cards, student loans, and beyond. None of these expenses were too shocking alone, but together, they added up!

Most of the time, good money management doesn't come to us naturally. Knowing where your finances stand, and most importantly, how to handle them, is a learned behavior; that being said, it can also become second nature pretty fast, and the best way to form smart money habits for the long-term is to educate yourself as well and as often as possible. And we get it: sometimes that's easier said than done. Where do you start? Why are there so many numbers? But by finding a way to stay focused, motivated, and yes, interested, taking control of your financial life might turn out to be a lot easier than you think!


On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we've got a great one for you! Financial guru, educator, and motivational speaker Ash Cash is joining us for some eye-opening conversation and to get into some of the details of his latest book, The Wake-Up Call: Financial Inspiration From 4:44 + A Step By Step Guide On How To Implement Each Financial Principle. We've been fans of Ash since the very beginning of His & Her Money and bringing him on board is an incredible opportunity for all our listeners to get a taste of all that he has to offer!

Here at His & Her Money, we love to talk about finances. But we also LOVE to talk about marriage and family life. Everything in a marriage is shared, including the finances - and everything that comes with them. Sometimes both sides come into a marriage with debt and financial baggage, and maybe it can seem easier to just let it go and carry on. But eliminating debt can be a massive weight off your shoulders, whether you're a couple or an individual, and it's never too late or too early to get the conversation started!


On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Javier Gutierrez from is here to share his incredible journey to debt freedom. When they got married, Javier and his wife Taylor had a combined debt of over $34,000, and soon they realized that neither of them wanted to foresee carrying their debt around for much longer. Listen in to find out how they got in the zone and destroyed their debt in less than two years!

Here at His & Her Money, we're not just a financial podcast. Not only are we avid counselors of marriage and family (and everything in between!), but we're also very conscious of faith. It's a huge part of life and can come up in all aspects, from business to everyday moments, and whether you have lifelong dedication or have just recently opened your heart to God, we're always excited to spread the conversation.

On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, we're so lucky to have Touré Roberts joining us for a great discussion on faith, business, and prioritizing your life. Touré is a Los Angeles-born pastor and entrepreneur with a passion for helping others and promoting "wholeness": the pursuit of being complete. He's just released his brand new book, Wholeness: Winning At Life From The Inside Out, and today he's giving us a taste of what's in store. Touré is a wealth of information and wisdom and has so much to say on worship, prayer, and how to apply them to become the best version of yourself that you can be!

Most people don't often think about getting rid of their debt as soon as they get out of college. Student loans are fast becoming the norm, but just because everyone has them, that doesn't mean you have to keep them! The thing is if your goal is to destroy your debt before it completely takes over, that often means living frugally. This might not sound like the most glamorous lifestyle, but if you can achieve financial freedom as soon as possible, it's worth it in the end!


On today's episode of The His & Her Money Show, Lily He-Prudhomme from The Frugal Gene is coming in to tell us all about her debt free journey. Lily is a blogger, full-time Airbnb host, and an incredible resource for learning about how to start your own debt free journey. She and her husband are also on the path to creating generational wealth, and we can't wait for you to hear all about it. At one point, Lily was splurging on a pizza from Costco; now she and her husband are putting away $100-150,000 a year in savings and living completely free of debt!
