On this podcast, we often talk about the importance of a true financial partnership with your spouse. When you’re on the same page about money, your marriage feels balanced. You have less stress, fewer money fights and it just feels better.
But we do we get there?
Where do we start if we’re feeling off-balance?
Today, I’ve invited my good friend Elle Martinez to join us on the show again. This is our first repeat guest so you know she’s awesome.
What are we covering today?
Elle and I discuss:
- How to craft the perfect money date
- Why a monthly get together is so important to your marriage
- How to make it fun even if you're a busy parent
Elle's professional and personal experience with family finance is refreshing and helpful. Whenever I speak with her, I come away with some solid information on how to improve my marriage and my money. You will too.
