The Positive Emotion That's Hiding in Plain Sight, Just Waiting for You to Notice It. EP: 586

11/26/2021
There’s a positive emotion that can help you be happy with what you have and shift out of that mental state where you’re feeling incomplete and like you might need something to fill a hole in your life. It's contentment. Not the "I have the remote, a blanket, and a cup of tea" kind of contentment. That's nice, but this is way deeper. And if you play along, you can feel it by the end of this episode.

11/23/2021
You know how in Goodfellas, Joe Pesci gets upset when someone calls him funny and he gets ticked off and says, "Am I clown? Do I amuse you?" all menacingly, like amusement is some kind of offense?

Imagine that your emotional wellbeing is a see-saw. On one side are all the negative emotions, and on the other are the positive emotions.

Real Money Talk: Forgiving Your Financial Mistakes. EP: 581

11/19/2021
We all make financial mistakes. No one has a track record of doing the precisely right thing with their money 100% of the time. It’s really really easy to spend money in ways that don’t pan out the way you’d hoped. It’s also really really easy to beat yourself up about those money mis-steps because you can quantify the mistake. So let's talk about how to forgive yourself for those inevitable mistakes so that you increase your trust in your own ability to handle money. Sign up for the How to...

Spending money isn’t the only way to procure the things you want and need.

11/16/2021
There are two primary ways to have more money in your pocket--you can spend less, or you can earn more.

Real Money Talk: Your Net Worth Is Not Your Self Worth. EP: 577

11/15/2021
I was inspired to make this the first episode of a week of episodes on real money talk because I just this morning had a moment of total money panic. I went to check the balance on our joint account--my spouse and I both pay in equal amounts each month and we use that joint money for our expenses, so it ends up getting spent by the end of every month and replenished at the start of each month. And despite the fact that as I write this it’s only the second week of the month, our account was...

Better Person Principle #2: Awareness is the first step. EP: 573

11/9/2021
ven though it’s a simple concept, awareness is a pretty rare and wonderful thing, like an orchid in a sea of carnations. Because it’s a lot more convenient to not pay attention to stuff--particularly your own stuff. Being able to see yourself clearly is how you start to make better choices.

11/5/2021
There’s something that may seem very small that actually has the potential to have a very big impact on your community at large, and that is to have more conversations with the people you know about the laws, policies, bodies, and people that govern where you live. Chatting with friends is something that might have gotten you labelled a 'bad student' when you were in school, but now it's something that helps you be a good citizen.

Why Supporting Local Journalism Matters, and How to Do It. EP: 568

11/2/2021
Local news outlets are a crucial piece of democracy. Journalists for local papers attend town hall meetings and school board meetings and zoning meetings and committee hearings and THEN THEY REPORT ON THEM. If the government or other entities that serve the public are up to shenanigans, or not fulfilling their duties, journalists are who bring that to light, and who report the full spectrum of a story and not just what one side wants people to know. Sadly, local journalism has been decimated...

Being a Better Citizen. EP: 567

11/1/2021
This week on the podcast, in honor of Election Day (which is tomorrow), I’m talking about how to be a better, more engaged citizen. Most of us know it’s important to vote in our presidential elections, but those only come around every four years, and there are so many more opportunities to influence your state and local government for the better. Democracy is, after all, by the people and for the people. You are those people, and without your engagement, the government doesn’t work as it’s...
