The Episode About Couples and Money with Casey and Meygan Caston

When it comes to couples and money there are two issues: #1 you don’t want to talk about money with your partner, and #2 you think you are always right. No wonder why money is one of the main reasons that most couples get divorced.

Casey and Meygan Caston, the creators of Marriage 365, are here to share how you can avoid those nasty money fights, get on the same money page, and have a thriving relationship. They share their real-life story of battling through $200,000 in debt, almost getting divorced, to now running a global business that is all about creating happy relationships. It’s safe to say they know a thing or two about healthy relationships.

Building a Strong Relationship

I’ve learned a lot in the last six years being in a healthy marriage about how to approach those tough money conversations without conflict. Some of the best ways we’ve been able to avoid catastrophic disaster having those tough money talks have been:

  • Treat each other with respect and realize that we both come into the relationship with our set of thoughts and beliefs around money.
  • Remember that we are partners and are in this thing together. This is so important to cultivating a healthy money mindset in your relationship.
  • Respecting each other’s thoughts when we set spending and savings goals so we both feel like we’re being taken care of.
  • Taking the time each week to talk about money in a healthy way without blame so we can keep progressing towards our goals and stay on the same page.

Casey and Meygan share many of these tips and suggestions in this episode. They are full of ideas about how you can not only create a healthy relationship, but also how you can save a relationship that is headed to divorce or separation.

Do yourself a favor this year and focus on building a strong relationship. Find ways you can communicate better with your spouse or partner and learn how you can play to each other’s strengths and not weaknesses. Marriage and relationships take work but it shouldn’t feel like a chore. I want nothing more for you to step into true partnership this year and live the life a life that makes you feel inspired by.

#1 Way to Find Clarity in Your Life & Your Finances with Natalie Franke

Life always has a way of directing you to where it wants you to go. Our guest, entrepreneur Natalie Franke, thought she would just go to college and become a neurologist when life threw her a curveball and she found out you had a brain tumor.

Her story ends well – she took this lifestyle change in stride, became a successful wedding photographer, started the Rising Tide Society which was acquired by HoneyBook in 2015, all at the age of 25. Natalie believes that finding clarity in life and your finances can be achieved once you learn how to tap into your genius zone.

Skip the New Year’s Resolutions & Set Goals Instead

New Year’s resolutions don’t work, it’s a proven fact. So why would you waste time or energy making resolutions? I’ve got a better plan I’m going to share with you in today’s episode.

According to U.S. News, 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February.  And, in a poll that was taken in 2017, 53% of people said their resolution was to save money and 45% was to lose weight and get in shape while 25% of people said they just wanted to have more sex. Ok, well those aren’t bad resolutions, right. But they don’t stick.

So what can you do – you’ve got to have a different plan for success – and it’s not about resolutions it’s about action.

Real Talk About Investing For Women (with Amanda Holden)

I’m normally not a big fan of separating women from men when it comes to money, however, I am a strong supporter of creating a new language around investing for women. Why, because, as our guest, Amanda Holden, aka the Dumpster Doggy says, “there’s a lot of femme shaming when it comes to money, how we’re spending and investing it and well, we just don’t process information the same way, but that’s a good thing.”

So let’s drop the bs and get some solid investing advice from someone who is committed to changing the way women invest.

Investing for women

What You’ll Learn

  • Why Amanda is passionate about teaching women what they need to know without the bs
  • The story behind Amanda’s successful blog, The Dumpster Dog Blog
  • Money blindspots women have and how to avoid those
  • How to win at investing even if you are a newbie
  • Why learning about investing is critical
