#120: Focusing on Your Finances with Aunt Kara

April is Financial Literacy month, and what better way to kick off this month than by putting all the focus on your finances!

Whether you’re just dipping your toes in the money management waters, you’re seasoned at making (and spending) money or you’re ready to tackle your financial situation head on, there’s no better time than right now!

And to help, I’m bringing Kara (also known as “Aunt Kara”) on the show today to talk about how to keep the focus on your finances, especially when the temptation to spend seems too high.

Get ready to be inspired and encouraged to make better money decisions, from here on out!

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • [04:00] “Aunt Kara” started as Kara answering money questions for her nieces and nephews and then expanding to share those answers on Instagram.
  • [12:06] Kara recalls having specific money conversations with her parents when she was little. They shared with her saving for retirement and paying off their mortgage.
  • [19:20] Setting milestones that can be achieved on the way to your long-term goals as a couple can help you work together and stay motivated.
  • [32:45] Kara shares the intentional decision she made with her job/company to stay put. She determined she is happy where she is and has no desire to continue to move up.
  • [43:37] To win the game of travel hacking, you must be able to manage your credit card payments. Paying interest is a losing battle.
