The Goal Digger Podcast

I was hesitant to record this show because our own financial situation looks a lot different than others… But when I shared the fact that we are entirely debt free -- we’re talking no student loans, no mortgage, no car payments, plus we bought two Hawaiian condos -- I got a ton of requests and questions about how we did it, how we planned for it, and my tips to reduce the debt you have! It didn’t happen by chance. We worked hard to reach our debt-free goal, and I learned so much in the process that I want to share with you. Today’s episode is going to dive into how we achieved being entirely debt free before my 30th birthday. And for the record, we pulled off this feat when I was 29 and a half.
