There is one thing we aren’t discussing enough when paying off debt.  This episode has been on my heart for a few weeks so here I am.  The reason I’m doing it is because I’ve seen these type of headlines repeat themselves over and over again.  We see stories of Susie paying off $40k in 10 months or Joe paying off 100k in 24 months.  
 
The fact is I have mixed feelings about these stories so I am going to give you some insight on why.  This is all my opinion, my thoughts, what’s in my heart.  
 
I want to share it with you just to give you a different perspective and just to get this off my chest as it has been completely bugging me.  
·      
      What you'll learn about in today's episode:
  •        What you can gain from these debt pay off stories
  •        The danger of these debt pay off stories have
  •        I’ll reveal what our debt pay off headline looks like 
  •        My one disclaimer that you should not ignore

There is more to personal finance than budgeting, saving, paying off debt--there is a little big deal called taxes.  We have to deal with them year, after year, after year.  They never go away and the IRS does provide a lot of information to educate us, but unfortunately for many look it looks like reading a foreign language.  Because I want you to start thinking about taxes and taking action now versus waiting until April, I invited CPA (Certified Public Accountant) to the show.  You will not only get to know her on the personal side but she sheds some light and tips to help you with your taxes on a personal and business level.
