I grew up thinking that there was never enough money, that I should never trust men with money in particular, I should never trust family with money…and that happiness was a luxury.”
Would you marry someone if they told you they had thousands of dollars worth of debt and a really bad credit score…all things you had NO idea about?
Our guest today, Kara Stevens is the founder of TheFrugalFeminista.com and has spent a lifetime overcoming the negative money lessons she learned in childhood to become a happy, successful, and wealthy woman today.
Born to a mother who immigrated to the U.S. from Antigua, Kara learned from an early age that money was scarce and she should never trust men – ever. So how does this play into her relationship with her husband today? What did Kara do when, for example, she discovered prior to getting married that her fiance had $19,000 of debt and a 550 credit score?
Kara is remarkable. She paid off $40,000 of debt in two years. She’s the creator of the super popular, Five Day Financial Reset challenge, where she had led over 10,000 women through resetting their financial life. She is the author of Heal Your Relationship with Money: Understand your “why,” let go of past financial dysfunction, and make peace with your money in just 28 days.
