In this week's episode, Jason speaks to Laura, a self-employed accountant who is married with two young boys. Laura explains how the break up of her parents when she was a teenager caused her to develop some money avoidance habits that, when combined with her spontaneous personality, almost caused her to go off the financial road.

Laura also explains how she made the change to become a saver, is teaching her children how to have a good relationship with money and how she reconciles her and her husband's different money perspectives.
