Financial Lessons From My 95-Year-Old Grandma

LISTEN NOW

EP.694

I’m a firm believer that if you’re living a luxurious life, but your family is suffering financially, then you’re actually not living a rich life at all. Instead, you’re living a greedy life. I want to share a story that really drives home why it’s so important to seek financial freedom not just for yourself, but also for your loved ones. 

I’m highlighting a moment where financial abundance allowed me to make the right choice for my grandma, instead of having to make a choice directed by lack of money. Listen in for more takeaways from the situation that my family and I found ourselves in when my grandma’s retirement fund ran out at 94 years old.
