134: Saying No to the Engagement Ring

Hey, I'm Chris.

I'm a former Analyst, Podcaster, and Producer. My goal is to help you understand your finances better in about the time it takes to make a bag of popcorn!

The engagement ring is seen as the universal symbol of love and commitment. But, it is also a huge expense and some, like today's guest, are opting to skip it all together.

Author and speaker Stefanie O'Connell joins me today to discuss why she decided to turn down her engagement ring.

Pop-Up Debate! – The Wedding DJ!

Welcome to another Pop-Up Debate! This is a special episode where I am joined by a past guest to debate a weird and fun topic.  We each get 1 minute to argue our side and then you the listener get to decide who mad the best argument!

This is all recorded live and on the spot…no practice…no redo…probably some popcorn…and definitely a lot of laughs!

Today I'm joined again by Stefanie O'Connell. Our topic… Is the wedding DJ overrated?
