Alejandra & Kevin are high school sweethearts, dating for eleven years. But they’ve hit rock bottom—mentally and financially. Their rent nearly doubled after their roommate moved out and they’re spending more than they’re making.
Kevin has inconsistent income while Alejandra doesn’t charge her clients what she’s worth. They also both have debt that they’re overwhelmed with. To add fuel to the fire, Alejandra and Kevin both struggle with their mental health and are unable to get proper treatment while living paycheck to paycheck. Can they rise from this rut and get into better shape financially and mentally?
Financial expert Misty suggests that Alejandra figure out what she should charge for her work and to start telling her clients that her rate is rising. She counsels Kevin to get his student loans out of default, as soon as possible, to potentially get student loan forgiveness. Misty also recommends that they get another roommate to lower their monthly expenses. Will this couple be able to implement her suggestions and rise from rock bottom?
