Imagine listening in on these raw, unfiltered conversations with real couples… One partner is in $300,000 in debt, but shrugs it off. The other cries at night, anxious about the future. A couple that’s so worried about money, they never feel they’ll have enough. When they eat out, they order chicken instead of steak to save $10. Their household income: $600,000. Two parents who feel overwhelmed by work, kids, and debt. When I ask them how they’d describe their lives, they instantly say the same word: “Stuck.” Ramit Sethi asks the questions we wish we all could ask, presenting a totally different philosophy on money: • Spend extravagantly on the things you love, as long as you cut costs mercilessly on the things you don’t. • Ask $30,000 questions, not $3 questions. • A Rich Life is more than math -- it’s mastering your money psychology. From the author of the bestselling book, ‘I Will Teach You To Be Rich,’ learn how money psychology affects these couples… and how to create your own Rich Life.

    “We’re married. Why do I have to ask him for money?”

    Allison is 36 and Dan, 37. They’re married with two kids living in a HCOL mountain town—a market variable that’s influenced them to sell her condo and supercharge their retirement investments with the profits. The condo is listed for sale, but Dan doesn’t trust her enough to combine their finances.

jacquiandtre ,

Great content!

IWTYTBR is one of the highlights of my week!
People are often reluctant to talk about money, so it is refreshing and enlightening to listen each week as Ramit helps a couple review their finances. During the interview Ramit explores how they learnt about money, as well as the stories and self limiting beliefs they have been carrying around for years.

guyovgcch Chu ,

Life changing!

This podcast has literally changed my view on money and in doing so, my quality of life. Ramit provides nuggets of knowledge that I can use while I learn about others’ financial situations and future plans. Such a great listen. I highly recommend 💜

inquisito65 ,

Skeptical of Sethi

While I don’t underestimate Ramit’s passion, I’m highly skeptical of his ability to psychoanalyse and treat the challenges of human relationships.
