Being in debt is not the American Dream with @scottalanturner #finance #money #debtfree Click To Tweet

Scott Alan Turner

Scott Alan Turner grew up in a blue collar home as one of five siblings. They had a simple financial lifestyle. He doesn’t remember his parents ever having car payments, credit cards, or debts.

Then when Scott got out of college, he learned all about debt. He had student loans and credit cards. As he began working and climbing the corporate ladder, he bought a Jeep and the biggest house the bank would finance for him. Scott ended up pretty normal as a single guy. He had a huge mortgage, a nice car, and was totally broke.

Scott soon realized that he didn’t want this kind of “American Dream.” He began listening to consumer advocate, Clark Howard, on the radio during his commute and realized everything he was doing wrong when it came to investing, insurance, utilities and lifestyle.

Since then, Scott has been “on a mad mission to help you get financial independence, ultimate happiness and a life full of awesome experiences.” He is also literally a rock star and plays lead electric guitar in several rock bands.

When you spend cash, you will spend less. @ScottAlanTurner #finance #creditcards #dads #fathers Click To Tweet

Money and Working Together as a Family

Money and finances is responsible for over 50% of the divorces in the US today.  To be honest, money is not at fault.  What is at fault is how we manage money as a family.  The question becomes: “How we can we control money vs. money controlling our family?”

Open Communication about Finances

To be successful as a family unit and manage money properly, we must have an open-line of communication with our spouse and kids.  Literally, being able to talk about money openly can be one of the best things we can do for the health of our marriage.  Running our family and a household like a business is critical to success.  We have to be able to identify cost and expenses vs. income.  Also, it helps if we can identify expenses in our life that are a “want vs. a need.”

 

Managing Family Money with a Weekly Meet Up with Our Spouse

Every single week my wife and I will talk about our bills.  We sit down and do a quick recap on money spent the previous week and what is coming up for the remainder of the month.  We also keep track of what we spend in several different categories (mortgage, groceries, utilities, car, clothing, etc).  When we have reached the limit on one category, we are done for the month and no more spending (with the exception of necessities – we won’t let our kids starve! LOL!)

 

Choose Who Will Do the Bills

In our house, we have tried several different ways to manage the monthly cash flow.  For us, when we both did the bills there were too many chefs in the kitchen.  Plus, my wife doesn’t have the emotional tie money that I do.  Meaning, she is great at not getting stressed when it comes to cash flow.  To be honest, I get very stressed when it comes to seeing money going out.  So, I am not the person who should be doing the bills.
