    Real Change over Good Intentions with Michelle MiJung Kim, author of The Wake Up

    Real Change over Good Intentions with Michelle MiJung Kim, author of The Wake Up

    Today I'm bringing you an interview with the author of a new book -- out today! -- that I can't recommend highly enough. The book is The Wake Up, and the author is Michelle MiJung Kim. The Wake Up is an important and necessary book for our times, about how we can take all of our do-gooder intentions and make real progress in fighting the status quo, while avoiding the harm that all too often accompanies good intentions. The book is practical and instructive, and raw and vulnerable, all at the same time. It belongs on your bookshelf next to Ijeoma Oluo and Dr. Ibram Kendi's essential books. Do yourself a favor and find a way to get your hands on it ASAP. Until then, here's a conversation that I absolutely loved with Michelle. Enjoy!

    What Is Wallet Activism?

    What Is Wallet Activism?

    Wallet activism is using your financial power in all its forms to change the status quo, going beyond what you spend to look at how you earn money, where you live, where you bank, how you donate, and so many more financial choices we make every day.

    To kick off this new show, today Tanja Hester is talking about Wallet Activism: what it is as a concept, and how the podcast and the book are different. We also talk about all the bonus resources you can get for free if you pre-order the book (available as a paperback, ebook and audiobook).

Integrity and personal financial power

I’m excited for more episodes! I appreciate Tanja’s integrity about having no sponsors, and it makes me trust her show and book even more (can’t wait to read it).

Quality podcast!

Tanja, thanks for putting out quality, information-dense content. I loved your book Work Optional and am ordering Wallet Activism. In your books, interviews, and now with this new podcast you bring a clear and authentic way of communicating ideas around financial independence, personal growth, and social justice that is rare. Many other interviewees and hosts dilute their discussions with a lot of personal content or even rambling that doesn’t add value to the topic, but your concise style communicates that you want listeners/readers to think differently and reflect as much as possible so that they can act and make change in their own lives. Keep up the great work!!
