In this episode, I chat with Erica and Jordan of The Worth Project about the three financial questions that changed their trajectory, our biggest money mistakes (which include Bitcoin, constant late fees, and “I deserve it” syndrome), and how to bring your money in line with your values, especially in a partnership.
We also touch on minimalism, food waste reduction, student loans, and their favorite financial books.
At the end of the episode, they give two practical, action-oriented calls to action for aligning your money with your values.
To get in touch with Erica and Jordan, visit The Worth Project and be sure to hop on their email list. (Erica’s emails are one of the few I read religiously.)

- “These three questions really help you tap into your intuition and who you want to become in your life.”
- “I want to write a book. What? Apparently I’d like to write a book.”
- “What am I going to do today that at the end of it, I’ll say ‘That was worth it?’”
