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.

In today’s episode, we cover money psychology, class, and creating a vision of a shared Rich Life.
“We make almost $300k per year but we can’t afford our mortgage”
Chris and Camilla are 33 and 31 and they make almost $300k collectively living in a high cost of living area. They recently bought a vacation home, like everyone on TikTok tells you to do. Surprise, surprise—there’s no fairytale ending here, just some empty social status and parents with a misguided sense of pride.
“I just learned he took out a secret $100,000 loan—two years ago”
Jan and Emily are in their thirties and recently bought a house. During the sales process, Emily discovered a $100k loan that Jan had taken out without her knowledge. To make matters worse, Jan admits he didn’t really have a plan on how to use this money to benefit their lives.
“We spend $3,000/month on groceries for our 5 kids, and it’s ruining us”

“I’m marrying him in 1 month—but our finances are terrifying me”
Beth and John came to me a month before their wedding—in fact, by the time this goes live, they’re husband and wife (hopefully). The trouble is that they’ve never really talked about money, that she’s afraid of being a deadbeat partner… and they both want a prenup.
