afford anything

Did You Hear My Entire Life Story on Afford Anything?

So ya’ll, I was on my casual trip to Las Vegas when I remembered that Paula Pant lives there. We decided to meet up for a co-working session, and then got to chatting about her podcast. She invited me on, which was so nice of her.

Beforehand, we talked about maybe discussing all the ways that people who want to retire and write could make a little side money. Sounded great.

I arrived that morning with a coffee in hand, not really having eaten. Paula records in her sound-proofed closet, so we had to sit on two stools, really close, and share a mic. It already felt like a confessional booth.

Then she starts me back with my childhood experience with money. I was like, “woah, ok, we’re going there…” What came out was essentially a 90-minute version of my financial memoir. There were tears.

Afterward I felt shaky and light, truly like a deep confessional had just occurred.

Since then, people have reached out thanking me for sharing this story and saying they’ve gone through similar experiences.

I hope you enjoy the episode!
