Debt is a four letter word that can evoke a lot of emotions. Whether you’re working to pay off student loans, recently purchased a home or are facing unexpected medical bills, debt is a part of many of our financial stories. While the word can be intimidating and even bring on feelings of guilt and shame, today’s guest is here to remind us that it does not have to define your long-term financial success. In fact, when used intentionally, debt can actually be used as a tool for personal and financial growth. Listen in as we talk about tackling debt with confidence!

We so excited to introduce Vikki Zacchilli, the owner and financial coach behind Minted Mindset. She spent 12 years in corporate finance until her desire to make a direct impact on others’ lives became too strong to ignore.

Today she coaches clients on reaching their full potential through financial literacy, money mindset, and organization.

Join us for a great conversation with Vikki, as she discusses the pivotal moments and mindset shifts that led to her personal debt free journey.
