Steven is a fellow Chicagoan and personal finance blogger with EvenStevenMoney.com who had to leave paradise and start over so he could dig out from under a mountain of debt. In the process, his now wife shows us how a supportive partner can accelerate the mindset change required to get serious about dumping debt. I love this personal finance meets romantic good news movie script we’re treated to. Steven is very honest about the challenges he faced when making the adjustments, but temporary sacrifices ended leading his family to a life of freedom. As you listen, reflect on the adjustment necessary in your own life that will help you get serious about eradicating debt.
