Despite working in the financial services industry for many years and getting an MBA, I was clueless when it came to managing my own money. But then something clicked. I became tired of living paycheck to paycheck and started looking for ways to change my relationship with money. Over the past two years, my husband and I have paid off $45,000 worth of student debt and credit cards. I felt inspired to share my story and help others who may be in a similar spot by writing my blog, KimGaleta.com.
