Our goal is to deliver much-needed advice and resources to couples of all ages. The lessons learned in our own relationship give us a blueprint for solving marriage couples’ money woes, and we want to pass along our insight to you.
So… who are we and why are we worth listening to?
- Middle-school sweethearts. That’s right. We’ve been playing this game for a while.
- Parents of three. You don’t *really* understand budgeting until you’ve executed three birthday parties in one calendar year.
- A stay-at-home mom and a Certified Financial Planner duo. From retirement planning to grocery shopping and kid shuttling, we’re doing it all.
- Servant leaders in business and every aspect of our lives.
The successes and rough patches in our marriage amount to countless teachable moments. In 2020 we acquired The Money Couple brand and can now present our hard-earned knowledge through a handful of awesome pages and platforms:
- 5 Money Personalities
- Financial Infidelity
- The Millionaire Marriage Podcast
- The Money Couple Blog
- Couples Courses
Our story is unique but relatable. Trial and error has shown us the right ways to achieve financial freedom while putting family first and enjoying life. With a little guidance, we know every other couple can do the same.

More about us and our financial journey
Where It All Started
Marriage & Taylor’s Graduation
I lost my job about two weeks after getting engaged, which we viewed as the perfect opportunity for me to go to college and start forging our path forward in life. During my time in college, I worked hard at loading trucks for UPS every morning and focusing on my schoolwork the rest of the day—a full 15- to 18-hour class schedule per semester. I got through college pretty quickly (100 hours in 15 months), only to graduate in the middle of a market collapse.
We got married on a Friday night in our hometown, Lufkin, at Megan’s church. Our immediate honeymoon was to Houston for the weekend. We stayed in a Four Seasons and caught an Astros game before heading back into town so I could take my last college finals. Our secondary honeymoon was in Vegas, mainly because we didn’t need to rent a car… you know, since I wasn’t old enough to.
Following our marriage, we decided to live below our means, seeing as I worked my way out of debt and Megan had come from a family that paid cash for everything. So, we started flexing our financial muscles: the majority of every raise we got was put into savings, and we acted as if we each made $10/hour. Saving was our number one priority.
Taylor Enters the Financial World
I left my brother’s company around 2013, started working in town at Merrill Lynch, and took on becoming our church’s youth pastor to about 70 kids, all so I could be closer to Meg and help raise our new baby boy, Kix. In the midst of my chaotic transition from essentially running a company to suddenly being the lowest on the totem pole, I quickly realized that Merrill Lynch was more concerned with sales than putting clients in the right investments. It wasn’t long before I started dreaming up my own company, leaving Merrill Lynch behind.
