why Chad and I are a good fit.
Chad is very future-minded, while I live in the present. He sets the goals, I maintain the functioning budget so we reach the goals. We have the next six or so steps already figured out for our debt snowball, but he’s the one who looks at it regularly, not me.
While we were driving to pick up the kids from my parents’ on Sunday he said, “I’d like to set some more financial goals for after we’ve finished our debt snowball. We’ve just casually talked about what vacation we want to go on and stuff like that, but I’d like to make a plan.”
My response… “We don’t have the first item on the debt snowball taken care of. I can’t look that far ahead.”
And he laughed. This is why we’re a good team.
