Hear how a law student with a part-time job was able to find the time to make $50k on the side. This is Part 2 of 2.

Episode 89: Earning More When You Have No Free Time: How a Full-Time Law Student Earned $50k on the Side - Part 2 (Ramit Sethi).

Instead of saying “no” to spending on everything, Ramit wants to use money to say YES. He knew there was a better way to live a rich life—if we could use psychology to focus on what actually works. Not just for personal finance, but all aspects of life: money, careers, relationships, business, fitness and more.
Since then, he's been testing and sharing his findings with the world via I Will Teach You To Be Rich.
He's also written a New York Times bestselling book, been profiled in a 6-page Fortune article and pictured next to Warren Buffett Forbes Magazine, and have been featured by a long list of media, including the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, NPR, Fox Business, PBS, CNBC and more. He also has tons of documented success stories—more than 20,000.

Mr. Money Mustache reviews the popular personal finance book, "Your Money or Your Life." This is Part 2 of 2.

Episode 83: Your Money or Your Life, Part 2 by Mr. Money Mustache (Book Review and Quick & Dirty Tips for Healthy Finances & Cash).

Mr. Money Mustache is a thirty-something retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal, yet awesome, life of leisure.
He and his wife studied engineering and computer science in Canada, then worked in standard tech-industry cubicle jobs in various locations throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s.
Then they retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of their peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.

Episode 81: 5 Steps to Turn Your Clutter Into Cash by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less (Selling & Getting Rid of Your Extra Stuff).

After decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all and have it all, a scary MS diagnosis stopped Courtney Carver in her tracks. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.
