The World of Marriage, Kids and Money

Young family

Where do young parents go to learn about getting rid of debt and building wealth? To the world of Marriage, Kids and Money of course!

Andy Hill is a father of two who learned hard financial lessons early on in life when he purchased a home he couldn’t really afford at age 22. He was thrilled to have achieved the American Dream at such a young age, but soon realized that his $200,000 investment was going to eat up 70% of his monthly after-tax income. To make matters worse, the house started requiring expensive repairs, forcing Hill to take out a HELOC against his home just to keep pace with his living expenses. Eventually, he decided to sell the home, barely breaking even with its initial price. This costly mistake was the catalyst that spurred Hill onto his journey toward financial wellness and empowerment.

Today, Hill and his family are in a completely different place. As part of their struggle to gain financial freedom, the Hills have reached the following remarkable goals:

  • Paying off $48,032 of debt in one year
  • Paying off a $195,000 mortgage in less than four years
  • Increasing net worth from -$50,000 to $750,000 in eight years

On his blog, podcast and online platforms, Hill shares his hard-won tips and advice for achieving and maintaining financial wellness while raising a family. The award-winning blogger and influencer has been featured in major media outlets like Business Insider, Market Watch and NBC News. His message of financial empowerment has resonated with thousands of followers across the country.
