What was you and your spouses first fight about after you got married?
Was it which way to put the toilet paper on the roll (Over the top always!!)?
Or maybe how you load the dishwasher?
OR did it have to do with money?
That’s a biggie. And maybe it wasn’t your first argument, but my guess is that you’ve had at least a couple discussions about how to spend money with your spouse.
You may have heard that money is one of the top reasons for divorce in America. There’s a lot under the surface of a couple’s money arguments. And we’re going to dig into those things as well as all things personal finance in this episode.
No need for you to have taken college Finance courses though. Yikes! Pretty sure I got a ‘C’ in that class.
Nope, this episode is full of relevant advice (financial and beyond) for any married couple.
This is also a first for the Gotcha Mama podcast – I have TWO guests and one is a MAN!
That’s right, a dad is on the Gotcha Mama podcast.
And it’s for a very good reason.
My guests on this episode are married couple Dan and Kay Ockey of Centsei Financial.
But this ain’t your mama’s budgeting!!
If you and your spouse don’t see eye to eye about your finances…
Or maybe you have big dreams of all the ways you’d invest and grow wealth for your family if you could just get out of debt…
This is one you definitely do NOT want to miss!
More about the guest
Dan and Kay are a married couple with a toddler and one on the way (congrats!).
Shortly after getting married, they found themselves arguing, frustrated and realized that their financial ideologies could not have been more different!
They knew that they needed to change something, or marriage was going to be a long and difficult journey.
After interviewing millionaires, reading every personal finance book they could find, and a lot of experimenting, they developed a plan.
Dan & Kay paid off $20,000 of debt in 6 months as college students and went on to achieve over $100,000 worth of goals in their first 2.5 years of marriage without ever making anywhere close to six figures, (and still going on vacation).
They created Centsei Financial to help couples and individuals struggling with the same financial issues they went through.
They are on a mission to help 10,000 couples build a financial foundation by teaching others to use the tools they developed to help couples achieve their personal dreams and goals now and far into the future.
We talk about
- Their individual views on money before marriage – they couldn’t be any more different!
- What happened that made them realize they needed to get on the same page with personal finances
- What they did to get out of debt and create wealth – FAST!
- How what they teach builds on AND is different from popular personal finance courses out there (we still love you Dave Ramsey!)
- What they’re doing to teach financial education to their children
- And SO much more!
