This week on the Creatives Do Money Podcast, Episode #28

My guest today Sarah is a coach, writer, and educator who teaches people how to spend their money, time, and energy on purpose.  

And together, we look at what does our everyday spending mean for the rest of our life?  How can we align our spending with our happiness and be better off for it, financially and otherwise? We also touch on the areas that Sarah is challenged with money at the moment. And we bond over being reluctant spenders! 

How much did your regrettable purchases total in the past year?  In this episode, we get into the nitty gritty of changing your finances by aligning your spending with your happiness. 

Sarah Von Bargen has been teaching on this topic for over 10 years and knows all the tips and tricks which she shares with us.

” Building the self-advocacy muscle by calling T Mobile {to negotiate down your bill}, it will literally serve you in other parts of your life.”
