FCP035 – How to Overcome Poverty

Welcome back to the Financial Conversation Podcast!

Tonight we are discussing a somewhat sensitive topic – how to overcome poverty.

Our guest, Femme Frugality, joins us in talking about what it’s like to live below the poverty level, what it’s like to seek government assistance, the challenges of being on said assistance, and how to work toward overcoming poverty.

Learning how to overcome poverty can be difficult, especially when the government doesn't make it easy, and it can be hard to face the fact you need help. We discuss the hardships and what you can do to overcome poverty here.

In this episode we discuss:

  • 2:00 – Femme’s backstory, living at the poverty level, and her experience with overcoming poor
  • 5:10 – Remembering where we came from and how we got to where we are today
  • 14:10 – Welfare requirements
