Humans of Honeyfi — Max and Lissa

With Humans of Honeyfi, we introduce you to the couples who make Honeyfi special.

Max and Lissa

How did you guys meet?

We met through a mutual friend in San Francisco. Lissa’s ex-boyfriend was there and said we would make a good couple. But we were friends for a while before we actually started dating.

What’s your favorite couples activity?

Snuggling with our cats, playing games, watching “cerebral British comedies” according to Netflix, hanging out at Lake Merritt, eating pancakes and waffles, soaking in hot tubs or hot springs. Now getting ready for baby due in early 2018!

What’s a money lesson you guys wish you learned sooner?

When we get stressed about money, one of us has the tendency to deal with the stress by ignoring its source. We both wish we’d figured this out sooner because avoiding financial stressors only compounded the problem. Things got better when tackled issues head on to make a plan and start solving the problem.

How has Honeyfi helped you and your partner manage money?

Honeyfi is great because it makes things visible so that we don’t ignore them, but instead start talking about them (see our tendencies above). It’s easy to find and digest our financial information in the app, and so convenient having all of our information in one shared location, rather than having to remember a bunch of different logins.
