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.

    “My top 5 lessons from one year of interviewing couples about money”

    Personal finance can seem complicated, but most issues are linked back to two core influences—how people think and feel about money. Where they land on those scales has a wide range of possible manifestations (skimping on frozen berries, anyone?). One year into the podcast, and a handful of these themes have become very clear. Tune in to this special solo episode as Ramit breaks them down.

    “We grew up poor—but we could be millionaires” (Part 2)

    Today, my goal is to move Austin and Annie out of the painful cycle of generational poverty by getting tactical with how they can turn things around. They’re young and make plenty of money to be comfortable—even multimillionaires—in their future. But we need to get the calculator out to make them believe it.

    Annie and Austin were both raised without knowing where their next meal would come from. They came to me looking for a way to break the relentless chain of generational poverty that they’ve experienced… and that they fear they’re passing on to their two young children.

    Lisa and Jeff are in their forties and have a blended household. They had about a $300k net worth before they were awarded a $1.275M settlement in January of this year. What’s important isn’t the details of the settlement, but that they don’t know what to do with it.

Not your ordinary MONEY podcast…

Ramit doesn’t only dive into financial mgt and personal finance …but what I LOVE most in his podcast is he also teaches the psychology behind money…that is otherwise often neglected. There is far deeper reason why each of us behave like this or that towards money…and it’s not always about our financial literacy. I learned so much in these episodes as to the WHY behind many attitudes towards money that help me understand my (and my husband’s) principles and beliefs. He also suggests at the end what each couple should do…that I wouldn’t have normally guessed! I’m a CPA but I still learn so much in this podcast…I’m hooked!

Good insights but host can be super annoying

The insights are good sometimes but Ramith can be super aggressive and overbearing. Comes off very arrogant. I have to check out more often than not because it’s so condescending. Not sure the insights are better than another podcast or even book in exchange for the arrogance.

So intense and judgmental

The host seems very knowledgeable but I feel he could do better in the coaching department. Shaming and judging (and tricking) doesn’t inspire change, just makes for sensational entertainment.
