Christie heard about XLYourFinances (xlyf) from a mutual friend. She has been using the spreadsheet for approximately 18 months. I followed up with Christie to see if she would be willing to do a personal finance interview and she agreed.
Tell me about your personal finance journey and where you think you are on that journey?
How did you handle your personal finances before you started using xlyourfinances?
What do you like about the spreadsheet. Any favorite features?
How has your view of your finances changed since you started using xlyourfinances?
Were there any surprises or 'a-ha' moments once you started using xlyourfinances?
What advice would you give for someone who is struggling with their finances?
Any other thoughts or ideas you would like to share?
Thank you Christie for taking the time to share your experiences with us!
