Do you have over six figures in law school debt? Have you ever calculated your net worth? Do you earn a sizable income but wonder where the money goes each month? These are all questions we tackle in this episode.
Up next in the Mom Life and Law Podcast series on money is Rho Thomas. She's a trademark lawyer in BigLaw, a mom of two toddlers, and a personal finance advocate.
Soon after their first son was born, Rho and her husband realized they had more than $670,000 in debt, comprised of their student loans, a car, and their mortgage. In addition, they had a negative net worth of over $340,000. She shares her journey of paying down debt aggressively, changing her money mindset, and paying it forward. Over the last 4 years, Rho and her husband have paid off over $400,000 of debt and hit a positive six-figure net worth earlier this year.
In addition to her law practice, Rho is a personal finance coach who helps other lawyers make intentional lifestyle and money decisions to regain control of their time, build wealth, and live the lives of freedom and choice they deserve. She has been featured in outlets such as Yahoo! Finance, Refinery29, Mic, and on her own podcast, Wealthyesque.

Debt doesn’t define you, and it doesn't have to stop you from your purpose!
