FCP008 – Why You Don’t Have to be Uber Frugal to Succeed

Welcome back to the Financial Conversation Podcast!

Today, we’re going to hash out the age-old argument: Should you spend less or make more to get ahead financially?

There’s no question that frugality and cutting out unnecessary expenses can help you make that first step towards financial freedom. Once you take control of your money, you take back control of your life.

All of us here at Financial Conversation are pretty frugal, but we want to talk about why you don’t have to be uber frugal to succeed.

Do you think you have to be uber frugal to succeed with your finances? There's another way to get ahead that isn't as limiting, and we discuss it here!
