When it comes to choosing someone with whom to spend the rest of our lives, we sometimes forget that beyond love and compatibility, our partner is one of the most important financial decisions we make in life.
Money is one of the most common sources of conflict between married couples. That’s why it’s important to establish a healthy and stable common.
Open communication and joint decision-making when it comes to finances can help strengthen your marriage and give you the opportunity to build a life together that you both enjoy.
In this week’s episode, the Dreamer joining us is none other than my husband Serge, father to our three lovely children, an engineer turned product management professional, a technology music lover, an eternal side hustler, and an overall amazing human. We’re sharing how we are managing our finances together as a couple, how we set our goals each year, and so much more.
We discuss how we save, budget, invest and spend our money together. Serge also shares tips on what he learned as a lifelong side hustler. Listen to learn more!

- Not everybody is meant to be a full-time entrepreneur. But at the end of the day, the most important thing is to enjoy what you do so you can actually live your life and not just survive shortly. – Anne-Lyse Wealth

- It’s about your sanity and making sure that we were allocating and devoting our time to things that were important to us like our loved ones and our family – that was a priority. – Serge
