You can afford anything, but not everything. We make daily decisions about how to spend money, time, energy, focus and attention – and ultimately, our life. Every decision is a trade-off against another choice.

But how deeply do we contemplate these choices? Are we settling for the default mode? Or are we ruthlessly optimizing around a deliberate life?

Host Paula Pant interviews a diverse array of entrepreneurs, early retirees, millionaires, investors, artists, adventurers, scientists, psychologists, productivity experts, world travelers and regular people, exploring the tough work of living a truly excellent life.

So glad I found this

Highly recommend this podcast to anyone who is looking for a straightforward and easy to understand approach to finance. I’ve learned so much and love the premise: you can afford anything, but not everything, and how do you evaluate that in the context of decisions you make every day. I find myself stopping to think about that every time I make a purchase. Thank you, Paula!

Listen if you want to change your finances and finally feel good about your money

I’ve loved this podcast since listening to a random episode a few months ago! The detail of the interviews leave you with clear, actionable advice about growing your wealth whether that be from saving, earning, or investing. Thanks Paula for sharing your knowledge and bringing us these amazing guests - many things in my life have changed in just the short time since I started tuning in. I’m spending less, saving more, and am on the path to invest in our first investment property in just a couple months. It’s way better advice than a lot of the traditional “leverage your assets” guidance that so many preach. For the first time ever, I feel COMFORTABLE with the real estate investment strategies you share. Thank you for everything 🙌

Rapid Learning

I love all your podcasts but this one resonated with me on so many levels. I have a doctorate in Adult Education and Research Methods and have done a lot of research on micro learning which closely aligns with rapid learning. Several of the courses I teach focus on meta cognitive strategies and I plan to direct my students to your website, and this podcast in particular, so they can further explore their own learning preferences and hopefully, take a more self-directed approach to examining how they best retain information depending on the content. Thank you for focusing some of your interviews on this type of educational content! Enjoy Ecuador and blessings to you as you go through a very challenging life change - I am going through the same life change as well. We’ll get through this!! ❤️
