What a blast!

It was published today, in the Washington Post’s business section — with our happy mugs below the fold (& as the second photo in the online slideshow).

Talking with Post reporter Nancy Trejos was a comfortable, positive experience. She expressed a lot of interest in different facets of family finance, especially in the face of a slowing economy & home sales.

Thanks Shashi Bellamkonda for connecting Nancy, Sean, & me.

  3. congrats! I know someone famous!

  4. […] friend, Sean Stickle and his wife, Jill Foster, were featured in a Washington Post article today on finances of couples: I Do, but You […]

  5. Nice one, Jill! As someone who is self-admittedly crap at managing money (which has put my marriage at risk in the past) and who now runs a small business, I’ve found it critical to be honest with my wife over money and to get solid advice from experts on managing it from the business side.

    With any luck, we’ll be mortgage (and therefore debt) free before 2015.

  6. Congrats Jill!

  12. Jill, Congrats! There’s no question, money can be a wedge in a relationship if you allow it to be. Thankfully, my wife and I have figured out how to work through good and bad financial times!
