Is it hard for couples to talk money?
Hope everyone had a great weekend and got a good start on your $0 Debt Challenge. By now, you should have taken account of how much total credit card debt you have, looked at your own budget and decided whether you're going to pay off one card or all of your credit card debt over the next 12 months. You should have found some image - whether it's your last bill or something you'd like to buy or do when the card is paid off -- that will motivate you to stay on task. If you're already credit card debt-free, you should be envisioning your next outlandish goal. Either way, I'm looking forward to hearing from you with you all with stories of your progress. Good luck.
Now for today's topic: money and relationships. On Tuesday at 1 pm Eastern, I'll be on Blogtalkradio talking with Corynne Corbett of ThatBlackGirlSite and journalist S. Tia Brown, answering the question of why it's difficult for couples to discuss money. We're taking your calls, so jump into the conversation at (347) 996-3308. If you just want to listen in, here's the link. Be sure to tweet that.
I'll be as fair as I can, but mostly I'm there to represent for men, so ladies, don't hold it against me. I'd love to hear your stories and thoughts on the topic, so post away in the comments or tweet me @k_dot_re.
Have a great week.
