Kristin Wong talks about our view of money and why we should think about it as a tool, rather than an end goal.

Episode 110: Money is a Tool, Not the Goal by Kristin Wong of TheWildWong.com (The Brutal Truth About Finances - Like Chris Hogan).

Kristin Wong of TheWildWong.com was laid off in 2013. She took on some freelancing gigs to earn extra cash while she searched for a new, full-time job and over time, her freelancing gigs increased. She started writing for sites that she loved reading and produced videos for new clients. Her side gigs began to bring in more income than any potential full-time jobs. She launched a blog all about frugal living and created The Wild Wong to share more about her career, her finances, and all the adventures in between.

BeMoreWithLess.com's Courtney Carver has a simple mission for you, plus her results.

Episode 106: Track Your Spending: Mini-Mission and How My Starbucks Addiction Fed a Community from BeMoreWithLess.com.

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.

Mr. Money Mustache fields a ton of finance and early retirement questions. This is Part 5 of 5.

Episode 105: Questions and Answers with the Washington Post - Part 5 by Mr. Money Mustache (Retire Inspired with Passive Income).

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.
