You’ve probably heard how giving not only benefits the recipients but the giver. However, what do you do when you’re in debt? Learn how you can pay off debt and give more to the causes that matter most to you!
Giving While in Debt?
When people ask this, two things jump out at me.
First, they have a generous spirit. That’s fantastic.
Second, their current budget isn’t working for them. That’s something that needs to be adjusted.
What if I told you there’s a way you can take care of the essentials, make progress on paying off your debts, and still give?
Today Certified Financial Educational Instructor and The Money Speakeasy founder Wilson Muscadin is here to discuss how.
In this episode we get into:
- Why we struggle with money
- A counter-intuitive way to think about how you budget
- How giving can help be wiser with your money
