Lauren is a self-professed spender. A few years ago, she and her husband found themselves $40,000 in debt despite their healthy income. With some difficult conversations and serious dedication, the couple worked together to overhaul their budget and finally pay off their debts. In the process, they’ve built a business that allows them to help thousands of other people with similar financial struggles.
In this episode, Lauren shares the story of how she and her family aggressively paid down their seemingly insurmountable debt. She also talks about the specific tricks they used to slash their monthly spending and the realizations she had about decluttering her house and her life.
Lauren’s message is resonant for anybody that likes to spend money, but wants to rein in their budget and make their money work harder.
