Do you feel like you’re stuck with your finances? Popcorn Finance host Chris shares how he and his wife worked to dump their debt and start saving together!
The Debt Free Story Behind Popcorn Finance
One of the first things I ask when you join the community is to share what goal you’re tackling. By far, the two biggest goals are dumping debt and having some savings for emergencies.
And that makes sense, seeing as the average household that has credit card debt, has a balance of just under $16,000. The average American under 35 has about $1500 in savings.
That can be a real burden on a marriage. But you two can get out of your financial rut and start making real progress.
My buddy Chris, creator and host of Popcorn Finance is on the show to share his story.
We get into:
- how Chris and his wife ‘K’ got into debt
- the system they use to budget and knock out their debts
- what’s his favorite money app
Hope you enjoy!
