What would you do if you were mortgage free?
WHEN MISUNDERSTANDINGS ABOUT MONEY CREATE CONFLICTS IN THE MARRIAGE
What happens when you and your spouse are not on the same page about finances? We have all heard the statistics about money troubles and divorce. One of the more courageous things Andy and his wife have done was to be transparent about their decision to go to couples counseling to address the diffuculties they were having AFTER becoming mortgage free. It is a wonderful candid episode.

MONEY LESSONS FOR KIDS
One of the really great lessons Andy and his wife have been emphasizing is “contribution to the household.” Andy has found the best way to his children become more willing to do chores is for him to do them with them. This sometimes means putting on the Greatest Showman soundtrack and doing dishes side-by-side. Not only is his daughter getting valuable time with her dad, but she is learning that work is rewarded by income.
FINAL CLOSEOUT QUESTIONS:
Money Lessons from Childhood – It is important to create goals but don’t forget they require action.
Money Lessons for Our Children – DREAM BIG. Do it early and consistently.
