My Latest Musings:

  • Dear Money Adventurer, I have a quick question for you: what do you do when life throws a money curve ball at you? Not a ball of money (which would be nice), but a financial challenge, one you never saw coming until it hit you by surprise in the middle of an otherwise unremarkable afternoon.

In these episodes, the hosts and I dive…

  • Dear Money Adventurer, Ten years ago, I sent an invitation out into the world: join me and 33 brave souls for a month of money truth-telling, one money story at a time. I called this experiment in collective money mindfulness “Money Memoirs.” Since 2013, this intimate interview series has illuminated the money stories of folks from around the world and all walks of life. In this interview mini-series, I talked to folks from all different backgrounds and walks of life…
