Before I even recorded my first podcast episode almost a year ago, there was one guest I always dreamed of interviewing. At the time I thought it was just that, a dream, but one year and 51 episodes later it’s now a reality!
I’ve been a huge fan of Gail Vaz-Oxlade for years. I obsessively watched Til Debt Do Us Part when I was 24, broke and living in a basement with two equally broke roommates. It was her say-it-like-it-is attitude and helpful advice that motivated me to save as much as I could and stick to a budget during those tough years. I am so thankful for her show and books, and I know I wouldn’t be as financially on track today if it weren’t for her.
I am also thankful that I got the gumption to ask her to be on my podcast early this year, because I think I got her right in the nick of time! Gail has had a long and successful career as a money guru, and she mentions in this episode, she’s going to be taking a step back to focus on other opportunities.
I hope you love this episode as much as I do! And I ardently encourage you to check out some of her helpful resources, her awesome books (Money Talks is a great read!), and join her community on Facebook.
And make sure to check back here next week (or subscribe to my email list) for my final episode of the season where I’ll be doing a special solo episode and giving away some prizes to mark my one year podcast anniversary!
