  • By: Greenpath Financial Wellness

Matt and Kendal each had a unique story that included financial hardships and bankruptcy.  They met, fell in love and decided to “merge corporations.”  Faced with the prospect of another bankruptcy, they decide to take a different route: a Debt Management Plan.  But this route proved to be a bumpy road and they had to figure out how to stretch their budget enough to pay their debt and their household bills, and still put food on the table.  The solution?  Designing new habits to automate their bill repayment– and a good dose of grit, humor and support for each other.  Newly debt-free, they can now plan a life that includes making home improvements to accommodate their special needs son.  Join us for a modern-day Valentine’s tale…
