BiggerPockets Money Podcast 61: The Repeatable Path to Financial Independence with Reshawn & Rob from Learn Hustle Grow

by | BiggerPockets.com

Reshawn and Rob got married nine years ago, joining their lives, families and bank accounts. Premarital counseling revealed two different views on money—and they knew if they wanted to stay married, they needed to get themselves on the same page.

Reshawn and Rob implemented a modified version of Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps program to get themselves out of debt so they could start investing. Their team approach to their finances, focusing not on who’s debt it is but instead focusing on paying it off together strengthened their marriage and their desire to attain financial independence.

They stepped away from the corporate world to pursue passion projects, Rob in real estate and Reshawn in travel planning.
