How to Build a Moneywise Marriage (with Weslia & Willa)

How to Build a Moneywise Marriage (with Weslia & Willa)

Knowing how to build a moneywise marriage is something many couples struggle with. The topic of money and budgeting can be a major stressor in marriage. Different backgrounds and views on how to spend and save can easily lead to conflict. My guests are here to discuss the role finances play in all stages of a relationship and the importance of having a plan. Willa Williams and Weslia Echols are the founders of Trinity Financial Coaching and the Abundant Living Radio Show. In this show, they share why an understanding of each other’s expectations about money isn’t just for married couples but something that needs to be communicated by couples before saying “I Do.” Their advice will help you navigate this sometimes sticky subject and make debt reduction and budgeting a joint effort. As with any relationship subject, communication is the key along.
