Gems from this episode:

  • “Transitioning from Sheep to Shark is transitioning from auto-pilot to on-purpose.”
  • “[At this stage of reviewing your financial affairs], if you’re still using your credit cards, it’s damn near impossible to actually get them paid off in a way where they stay gone because you’ve never changed the habit that caused the debt in the first place.”
  • Living in a state of financial stress uses up so much mental energy. It’s exhausting. It literally decreases your IQ for about 12 – 15 points.”
  • “This is all about living your best life now, but also figuring out: what does your best life really mean?”
