Meet Alli Williams
Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s get to know our expert, Alli Williams. She’s the brains behind Financially Focused, a journey that began as a blog in 2017, documenting her personal quest to pay off debt. Fast forward, and it has evolved into a thriving business, complete with coaching programs and courses.
Alli’s financial journey includes conquering a whopping $154,000 of debt, a feat she’s helped countless others achieve as well. Her mission? To help people craft realistic financial plans without having to sacrifice everything (yes, please!).
Financial Freedom Begins
Alli’s financial journey started when she graduated college in 2013 and was hit with the reality of debt and expenses. Her journey wasn’t just about paying off debt – it was about finding a balance between paying down debt, saving, and still living life to the fullest!
The Shocking Reality
When she met her husband, she thought he had around $100,000 in debt. However, as they prepared for marriage, they discovered that the real number was a staggering $154,000. This revelation could have led to frustration, but Alli took it as a challenge and decided that they would conquer this mountain of debt together, by creating a realistic budget!
One key lesson Alli learned along the way was the importance of finding a balance between paying off debt and still enjoying life. She emphasizes that you can’t put everything on hold for years while paying off debt; it’s a recipe for burnout. 📊
Navigating Financial Conversations in Relationships
Alli and her husband’s experiences highlight a common scenario where one partner is more financially conscious than the other. They had to find a system that worked for both of them, with Alli managing the day-to-day finances and providing regular updates to her husband. It’s not just about paying off debt but also about developing healthy financial habits as a couple!
