Listen now
The Community Q&A comes from Sheila who writes: "Well hi there Shannah, thanks for all the great money gems that you dish out on the show. You’ve really changed my life and I love listening to episodes over and over again because I always learn something else. This podcast is like my fun encyclopedia for all things money. That sounds bad - seriously this show is fun and educational. Ok, so I have a question. I’ve really been thinking about my debt and want to seriously tackle it. I know you’ve done a lot of episodes on this, but curious if there’s one that you could point me to. I’m trying to reframe how I’m thinking about debt too. I know you mention that not all debt is bad...I mean, is that true? I seriously hope it is because it feels really unrealistic to say that I will never have debt and that when I’m debt-free, I won’t have debt again. That just doesn’t make any sense. So I think the trick is to figure out how to pay it off with a strategy as you say and then have a good mindset about debt going forward. Anyway, I’d love to hear any guest again that you think has a good perspective on this whole debt thing. Please keep up the’s honestly the reason why my finances are so together and it feels really good."  Take a listen to this episode featuring Michael Bovee and his take on debt.
