I feel more confident around money now

This podcast has really helped me learn a lot about not finance in a way that is easy to understand. I am the type of person who like to not think about money because it stresses me out, but Dalene has really changed my opinions on this and makes money seem approachable. Thank you, Dalene!!

Hard to listen

Voice is really grating and audio quality is so poor. Unfortunate because topic was interesting.

Great advice

I am glad that I caught an interview with Dalene on a completely unrelated podcast about Hospice care. It pointed me to this podcast and the timing was perfect. I like the common sense approach she gives. I’ve followed (in the past) another well known financial freedom champion who gives a “my way or the highway” approach. Dalene acknowledges that there is no one size fits all approach to getting to the same goal.
