Ep 001: Status, Work and Money

When we meet a stranger, most of us will break the ice by asking ‘what do you do for a living’? But unconsciously, with this question, we enable ourselves to make broad judgements about each other based on nothing more than a job title.

In this first episode of A Wealthy Life, I am diving straight into how our lives are shaped so much by the need for high status and important job titles – often at the expense of our own wellbeing.

This desire for status can lead us to fear change, or even retirement!

Combined with the financial pressures of providing for yourself and your family, it’s so easy to get trapped in a job because of the title, even if it makes you miserable.

I’m here to reassure you that you don’t have to do this alone. It’s ok to talk about money, and it’s ok to ask for help, because your time and happiness is worth so much more than title or salary.
