Hey there friends,
I was recently interviewed by my friend Lisa Duke, she is an Accredited Financial Counselor and is currently training to be a Financial Fitness Coach.
On her Youtube channel, she interviews various people from all walks of life to share their so-called “money stories” in order to inspire people to improve their relationship with money.
Lisa wanted to hear some of my money scripts that I have not told elsewhere before. In order to prepare myself, I went through a self-reflection exercise for about 15-20 minutes which helped me dig into some of my own “money stories”. In this interview, we talk about how I viewed money as a kid and how that relationship with money evolved over time. In short, it goes from wanting riches and status, including a Porsche 911 to focus on a more Minimalistic lifestyle and happiness.
- Money was on my mind since I was a kid, and obviously still is 🙂
- For any parents out there, the guidance and help on job information were helpful throughout my teenage years. (Even though I sometimes only asked about money to the professionals 😁)
- Money beliefs and attitudes change over time: Money was a driver in my studies and career, but at some point, I got content and got more focused on developing myself and looking at opportunities. If you never feel like you have enough you will never invest!
- On minimalism: By moving around all the time and focusing on buying quality, it helped me become more mindful about possessions
- If you are interested in some particularly expensive stuff like a sports car or boat, maybe you can rent it and still experience it instead of owning it and having all the costs.
- Status is overrated, do not buy things to impress people or chase status, in the end, everyone cares about himself!
