Confessional: Materialism, worthiness, and financial “discipline”

Confessional: Materialism, worthiness, and financial “discipline”

Is your spending problem a purpose problem?


The central thesis for this episode is that when you think you have a spending problem, what you probably have is a purpose problem. 

This week, we’re getting philosophical—and I’m diving into a series of realizations I had when transitioning from Spendy McSpenderson to Sally Saver, about the role money played in my life pre- and post-”baptism by FI/RE.” (See what I did there?) I also chat with mindset and manifestation expert Haley Hoffman Smith (https://www.haleyhoffmansmith.com/) on the void money creates and what we should be aiming for instead.

It’s one of the more vulnerable episodes I’ve published, but my hope is that it’ll inspire you to reflect in a way you haven’t before about your relationship with materialism and its role in your sense of self.
