Podcast: Key Takeaways

Podcast: Key Takeaways

  • We spend our whole life thinking about what we can’t do with our money, so it’s hard to imagine your rich life initially
  • A rich life is not a number; it’s understanding you and your partner’s values/interests and achieving them without the influence of society
  • What is your rich life? Talk about this with your partner
  • Money is opaque and unclear to compare across situations
  • We always try to compare ourselves to others but it’s more important to take a deep dive into understanding your goals
  • Spending/saving habits are not always directly correlated to wealth

Defining A Rich Life

Defining A Rich Life

  • Most people have never thought about this question, individually and as a partnership
  • People’s feelings on how they are doing financially are highly uncorrelated with their actual financial status
  • Americans love to compare themselves to their neighbours
  • Financial plans are more exciting and successful when you shoot for the moon rather than sacrificing your values and interests right away
  • The more dialed-in your rich life becomes to you, the more incomprehensible it should become to everyone else

Counselling Exercise With Your Partner

Counselling Exercise With Your Partner

We spend our whole life thinking about what we can’t do with our money, so it’s hard to imagine your rich life initially

Step by step process with your partner:

  • On separate pieces of paper, write down your bucket list
  • Share them with each other
  • Pick a couple and put a dollar value on them
  • The numbers can be very different
  • Go with the bigger number – it will make the moment that much more worth it!

This makes talking about finances more fun to talk about each month while you slowly but surely chip away at the goal

Weekly Financial Meetings

Weekly Financial Meetings

  • You’re off to a bad start if one person is dragging the other to the meeting
  • Don’t blame, always ask questions to understand the context around spending/saving habits
  • Spend less time looking at fixed expenses (rent, groceries, gas), spend more but still little time on variable expenses (travel, gifts)
  • Spend most of the time examining rich life goals and updating progress, maintain a backlog of more rich life goals as you achieve them
  • These meetings can be depressing/challenging, make it a positive experience my going out to dinner or something out of the ordinary

Saving Could Be Worse Than Spending

  • Everyone is taught how to save money but nobody teaches you how to spend money
  • Family history can be very influential on this
  • Many people collect money eternally without having any rewarding goals
  • Would you rather end up at 60 years old with more money or more experiences and a little less money at 60?
  • People create a false financial story and live it
  • “I’m not good with money” is a narrative that can easily be changed if committing to a plan
  • Treat your financial plan like a business

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
