Exciting news: J.D. Roth invited me to write a guest post for his legendary blog Get Rich Slowly! You can read it here:
The post is part of the “money stories” feature, where guest readers post their own stories of financial success – and failure. For February, the theme is relationships, and how couples manage their money together. I tell the story of how the wife and I worked together to turn our finances around, and the unique challenges we faced along the way.
I had the pleasure of first meeting J.D. at Camp Mustache last year, and I'm excited he gave me the opportunity to tell my story to a wider audience. While you're visiting, be sure to hit the subscribe button, if you haven't already!
