HY$YD: Year 2 Montage

Ep42: This is a little bit of a different episode since we've been on hiatus but I'm excited about the launch of Year 2! You can think of this as a Season 2 of HY$YD and I'll be documenting my continued journey of getting out of debt and investigating the habits that influence our decisions to save, get out of debt and live a healthy life - physically, emotionally and financially.

This is a little bit of a different episode since we've been on hiatus but I'm excited about the launch of Year 2!

This episode is a little fast-paced as a lot happened since October. Buckle up and enjoy! Future episodes will have more structure and slower pacing ;)
