Mindset over Money

Episode 25:

Welcome to Season Two of the Uncommon Life Podcast! We had such a wonderful experience in our first year! If you’ve been listening for awhile – thank you for listening and for sharing your thoughts on how to make the podcast even better in the future. If you are checking us out for the first time, welcome!

In this episode, we wanted to jump right in and talk about shifting your mindset when it comes to following your dreams. When we talk with people about their hopes and dreams, 9 times out of 10, it is things they would like to accomplish in the next 1 to 3 years. But the common way people save and use money means that those dreams are more than likely deferred until retirement.

We would say that’s kind of a flawed system. You should start trying to do more of what you love doing right now.

It’s mindset over money and when you have that mindset, you take control of things in the future. This isn’t magical thinking. We help people accomplish this, and we want that for you.

Welcome to the Uncommon Life!
