I’m sharing 12 money lessons that really made a difference in how I handle my finances. We’re talking about things like planning for the long term, being smart about spending in a world full of temptations, and making sure your spending matches up with what really matters to you. I also get into understanding your own ‘money story,’ the importance of not always going for instant rewards, and saving money without a specific goal in mind. Take a listen to get all my tips and tricks for building a better relationship with your money, making the most of it, and using it to make your life better.


Episode highlights:

  • Shifting perspective from immediate spending to long-term savings.
  • The importance of aligning your spending with your values – your bank statement reflects your priorities.
  • Saving money without a specific goal.
  • Understanding that discomfort and resistance is a normal part of changing habits.

“There is no shame in saying to yourself, ‘Look, I need to spend some time learning how to better decide where my money goes, learning how to be resilient to these things, learning how I spend, looking back at where my money has gone, actually getting a handle on where my money is going.’”

“One of the best goals you can have is to have your bank statement really reflect what matters to you.”
