The Dollars and Cents of Homeownership with Aimee Cerka

Let’s face it, purchasing a home is one of, if not THE, biggest purchases that you and your family will ever make, which is why I just knew that I had to bring you this conversation with money confidence coach Aimee Cerka. 

In this episode, we’ll look at things such as the big differences between having a scarcity mindset versus having an abundance mindset, what you can do if you and your partner come from totally different backgrounds with money (and have much different views on the topic), how you can compromise, and so much more! Purchasing the home is just the first step, but once you move in there will be a lot of ongoing expenses to face. If you don’t do the money mindset work that Aimee shares about today, you risk feeling stuck and overwhelmed with this process (and we don’t want that)! 

Aimee helps families master their money, and her principles and style of teaching allow them to create the financial life that they dream of. Best of all, she helps them do this without having to skimp, or having to work 80 hours a week to support their lifestyle. Aimee believes that you can improve your life while also improving your finances, and I hope you get a lot of value and good information from this episode with her!
