Episode 03: Money + Debt

In this episode, Elise & Scott Grice open up about their history with money and the complexities of building wealth, overcoming shame, paying off debt, managing expenses, and increasing your earning potential.

“Our goal isn’t just to spend as little as possible or to make as much as we can. Our goal in all of this is about choices. That’s what so many of us are after when we talk about quitting our day jobs, starting a business, or living with less. We just want the ability to choose.”
