#23. Molly Laughter: How to conquer debt and still get ahead.
May 19, 2020 Season 1 Episode 23
Aaron Agte and Trishul Patel

In this episode, Aaron and Trishul introduce Molly Laughter, a wealth manager from Dallas, Texas. She discusses her history with student debt and how she and her husband paid off about a quarter million in student loans in 6 years. They were even able to consistently increase savings every year to save for a house. Molly then discusses the value of automation, but she also exposes the flip side dangers of wasteful subscriptions and mindless spending. By tracking your spending, you can determine if your money aligns with your goals and your happiness. In the end, Molly reinforces the message that big, immediate changes may be too drastic to stick to, but small incremental changes over time can be more powerful.
