Have you ever been frustrated with how long it was going to take to get out of debt? Learn how to handle setbacks, define your family's path, and knock out your goals together!
Defining Your Family's Financial Success
Do you ever feel frustrated with how things are going? You read these awesome stories like This Couple Paid Off $72,000 in Debt in 22 Months or Couple shares how they wiped out $162K debt in less than 3 years.
You're thinking, ‘wow we're working at a snail's pace'.
While I love a great debt free scream and seeing these couples tackle their goals so quickly, I also know that those same stories can be discouraging.
I want to highlight a different story.
Today Steve Goodwin from My Family on a Budget shares his family's more down to earth journey to becoming debt free and building wealth.
In this episode we discuss:
- how F
inancialPeace University transformed their finances
- Steve's big mistake with investing and how he fixed it
- making the transition to being a stay at home dad
Hope you enjoy!

If you want to hear from another couple who did pay off their debt, but on their own timeline, please check out my interview with Toni Husbands.
We also discuss how they managed to pay $100k off when they couldn't agree on the ‘how' at first.
