Money is a taboo topic as we know, which is why so many of you come to listen to this show. Here, we go where most conversations DON’T. And when you’re in a relationship money is often the LAST thing you want to talk about. And so naturally, couples struggle to communicate about money and work on their financial issues.
My guests today are dedicated to helping couples have better conversations on money and marriage. Derek and Carrie Olsen run the blog DerekandCarrie.com. Their new book, “One Bed One Bank Account,” was released this year and they’ve spent most of 2015 traveling the country meeting with couples, sharing their advice and strengthening their own finances. Did you know Carrie’s home was almost foreclosed upon? They admit to almost going broke at one point but they’re soon ready to eliminate all their debt in the New Year.
One of my favorite quotes from the interview: “Couples get stressed when they talk about $ and we get excited because it’s a source of possibilities” – Click to Tweet
