Looking to build up your marriage and money? Check out these 10 podcasts and sites to help you build wealth together!
Helping Couples with Money
I started Couple Money because I wanted to have a safe space to discuss not only finances like how to get out of debt, invest smarter, and build wealth, but also the very deeply personal part of marriage. You know,
- how do you create a budget that both of you are happy with,
- should you loan money to your in-laws,
- deciding if one of you can stay or work from home with the kids.
Money isn’t the most important thing, but it can really mess up a marriage.
When I began, there weren’t many places that dove into both sides.
Now there are plenty of wonderful sites and podcasts. And while there is definitely overlap in topic, they are each different. It makes sense because each couple has their own DNA and approach.
Today I want to share 10 of my favorite sites and podcasts I’ve enjoyed and have learned from. While not all of them may be your wheelhouse, I’m pretty sure you’ll find some new favorites.
Hope you enjoy!
