This week, my friend Kyle Depiesse stopped by the neighborhood to share his financial journey with us.
After Kyle calculated his households career earnings, he knew a change was needed.
He got to work researching and found Dave Ramsey’s plan which helped him pay off $380,000 worth of debt in only 38 short months.
During this time, he and his wife became parents so we talked about the impact a child has on your finances as well.
We wrapped up the episode talking about how to deal with burnout from a debt-free journey as well.
You definitely don’t want to miss this one!
