What if your partner’s medical bills used up all your savings – would you leave then?

Want to be wealthy but you’re totally broke? If you’re broke, are you embarrassed and not dating because of it? Wondering if it’s possible to create a real partnership with someone that aligns in heart, head, and finance?

You can become wealthy on any income and find your mate even if you're penny-less today, according to this week’s expert. In today's broke-to-millionaire behind-the-scenes expert interview, Jennifer Diepstraten of FamilyCo interviews Rennie Gabriel, author of Wealth on Any Income.  Rennie shares how his partnership with his wife, Diane, allowed him to turn $16,000 into $2.5 million in just 8 years, and gain a marriage he never thought was possible. 

Rennie Gabriel was divorced twice and totally broke by age 50.  But “broke” is not the same thing as poor, and he shares the attitudes and skills that turned around both his personal and financial life. What’s more Rennie, Certified Financial Planner, wealth coach, real estate investor and teacher at UCLA shares some unusual ideas about money that can unlock the secret to financial wealth and personal abundance for average income families.  His ideas are usable and easy-to-understand for wealth management for families.

Jennifer Diepstraten interviews Claudette Chenevert, the Stepmom Coach, about the roles and expectations of bringing in a new parent (stepparent) with teenagers and how to navigate the stepmom role.  She addresses questions such as, “What level of parenting or interaction is appropriate for my fiancé to have with my 14-year old son (from a previous relationship)?”  “How do I feel welcome in my home as a new stepmom?” and “Which parent should be the disciplinarian when you have teenagers?” 

 

Claudette shares from her vast knowledge about relationships, communication, and stepparenting to help stepmoms craft a vision of the kind of marriage and family they want to have, so that everyone feels safe in their home, like they belong, and that they have a sense of control.

For this week's episode, Jennifer and Peter do a Relationship Q and A session as podcast listener Nicki calls in with relationship questions: “My boyfriend has three kids, the youngest is 16. We want to get married but we don’t want to wait until the youngest is 18.  How do you make a relationship work when my boyfriend is caught in the middle between wanting to please his kids and wanting to be with me? We want to be married so how do I forge a relationship with older kids?”

Sensing a deeper issue, Peter and Jennifer coach Nicki and she reveals the big vision she has for them as a blended family and how her attempts at it have been thwarted. The episode’s questions resolve as Nicki gets reconnected to her own sense of power and that she can cause her own transformation.
