2FD 034: Listener Case Study with Francis Pasket

We have completed our first ever listener case study!

We are so excited to have Francis Pasket, a loyal 2 Frugal Dudes listener, come on the show to open up his life with you to see where he can improve. Francis and his family have the opportunity to live back with his parents to get a handle on their finances and start saving a down payment for their first house.

While saving for the house, Francis also wants to invest for his family’s retirement and get rid of his car loan to leave debt in the rear-view mirror. Please leave a comment if you have anything to add for Francis or submit a request to be a future case study on the podcast. CHA-CHING!
