More than half of Americans say they are living paycheck to paycheck -- including this weeks’ listener, a 39-year-old college professor who, despite having a high income, is struggling to stick to a budget. For help, Stefanie interviews Alison Baggerly, the founder of Inspired Budget, about the practical financial and emotional strategies our listener can use to break free of the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle for good.
