GreenPath Financial Wellness Launches “Real $tories” Podcast

Podcast to feature true stories of people overcoming financial challenges and achieving financial wellness

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH. (December 5, 2019) – GreenPath Financial Wellness, a national nonprofit that provides financial counseling, education and products, today released the first episode of its new podcast, “GreenPath Real Stories – Journeys of Financial Wellness.” The podcast will feature in-depth conversations with men and women who have overcome significant financial hurdles and come out on the other side. Other interviews will focus on individuals still working through their financial struggles.

“The goal of this podcast is to give real people a platform to tell their story,” says Chris Dlugozima, GreenPath Learning Experience Designer and one of the podcast’s hosts. “So often, we’re boiled down to our credit score. We aim to reframe the conversation around the broader human experience of money and financial health.”

New episodes of the podcast will air monthly and feature one-on-one conversations with everyday people who have reversed their often dire financial situations to arrive at a place of financial wellness. In the inaugural episode, Dlugozima talks with Katie, who over a number of years, accumulated $26,000 in credit card debt. This single mom enrolled in a Debt Management Plan (DMP) and was able to pay down her debt more quickly as a result. Today, Katie works for GreenPath helping others who find themselves in situations not unlike her own.

Future episodes will tell the stories of Matt and Kendall, who faced the prospect of filing for bankruptcy a second time; Angela, whose dream home almost turned into a financial nightmare; and Annie, who faces a difficult road financing her return to college.

“The podcast is part of GreenPath’s continued efforts to share real stories of people overcoming seemingly unsurmountable financial situations,” says Donna Doleman Dickerson, GreenPath’s Chief Marketing Officer. “This new platform allows us to share longer form, personal stories that offer hope. There are many success stories out there, and we look forward to sharing them.”
GreenPath Real Stories is available for download on iTunes, Spotify and Stitcher via the GreenPath website at

Based in metro Detroit, GreenPath delivers personalized services to clients looking to live financially healthier lives. In 2018, GreenPath served 205,022 households on their journey to financial wellness.
