Tips To Manage Money Better {& how to teach it to your kids}


Do you want to learn to manage money better?  Do you want to know how to make your money work for you? Financial expert and author Ericka Young is visiting with sisterhood today to help.  Ericka is the president and founder of Tailor-Made Budgets which she opened in 2005 after she and her husband Chris were able to climb their way out of nearly $100,000 in debt. Ericka just released her new book, “Naked and Unashamed: 10 Money Conversations Every Couple Must Have” in February 2017, which hit the Amazon Bestseller List.

In the podcast we cover why women are such a critical factor in the family budget, what programs work best, what prevents us from getting the financial help we need, and how to have helpful conversations with your spouse about finances.  We also cover how to teach our kids about managing money and what we can do to better educate them as they grow up.

Plus, don’t miss Ericka’s favorite budget-friendly go-to meals at the end of the episode.  This is a practical and helpful episode that will move you toward greater financial freedom and strength.
