The Skill of Spending | Mr. Money Mustache | Ep 432

In this episode: tackling the big issues, the everywhere effect, change and discomfort, and getting the most from what you have.

On this Podcast in recent months, we have made a point to highlight the fact that FI isn’t about deprivation. While we do think making a few cuts in some areas is a good thing, we believe in that idea because it acts as a means to an end, with the endpoint being living the most fulfilling life available to you. So how is it possible to deprive ourselves in a manner that doesn’t leave us feeling deprived? Well, we have to skill up our spending abilities.! This week we have Mr. Money Mustache on the podcast to discuss the skill of spending and how to approach utilizing your resources to ensure your own happiness and well-being. Make cuts in your life where there is a lack of purpose so you can level up areas of importance and passion!
