What Would You Give Up to Get Rid of Debt (with Tamar Atamian)

What would you be willing to give up to get rid of your debt and save more money?

In this episode, I sat down with Tamar Atamian, the VP of Marketing at Wescom Credit Union, to have a chat about a recent financial survey of Southern Californian millennials. I learned some eye-opening findings like millennials in Southern California save less than $200 a month. It makes sense, this city is expensive and you have to choose how to best use your cash. Whether you live in a big city like Los Angeles or a small city, you know the struggle of figuring out how to save money, how much to save and then what to do with it.

New podcast talking about how to get rid of debt and save more plus the benefits of a credit union

What You’ll Learn

  • What most millennials would do to get rid of debt
  • How to balance saving money and achieving big goals like buying a house
  • Why Tamar thinks credit unions are an important piece of your financial future
  • How financial fears are impacting our finances
  • Tips to rev up savings in unlikely places

The Quest for Financial Independence with Bola Sokumbi

There always has to be a why when searching for financial independence. Why do you want to want to save money, why do you want to buy a house, why do you want to change your career, why do you want to retire early?

Whatever the why is for you, it’s important that you know why because your why determines everything – how much you need to save, where you should live, what things matter to you, and your why also keeps you from competing with others.

Our guest on this episode, Bola Sokumbi, is a finance expert, author, podcaster, and founder of Clever Girl Finance discovered her why way back in college when she saved 100K in three years – that is no small feat. She did all sorts of things to save the money, stuff that you and I might think is crazy… but it worked. And now she wants to show you how you can find your why, create massive change in your life, and have some fun doing it.

What You’ll Learn

  • The steps Bola took to save 100K in three years
  • The money lessons Bola learned from her mom that helped her in her financial journey
  • Why Bola decided to write a book and the chapters she thinks you need to read ASAP
  • What’s one piece of money advice Bola wished every woman knew
  • How to achieve big money goals when they feel so far away
