Welcome to the second season of Budgets and Cents, a podcast co-hosted by Cait Flanders (formerly Blonde on a Budget) and Carrie Smith (Careful Cents). If this is your first time listening, welcome! You can use our episode guide to catch up on all 12 episodes of season two.
We’re sad to say that this is our final episode of the season, which is bittersweet for us – but we thought we’d wrap things up by talking about the idea of “doing what you love”. First, we share our own definitions of this phrase, as well as what “following your passion” means to us. In that, we also share the things we’re personally passionate about.
We then dive deep into some important questions, like whether or not you should quit your job to do what you love? What happens if your plan fails? What would make you give up being self-employed to get a “regular” job? And what would cause you to give up and throw in the towel?
Finally, we open up about the dreams and goals owe have for our own blogs and businesses. At the end, we share an important update about season three (yes, there will be a third season)! And there will be a few secret episodes that pop up between seasons, so look for those here or in iTunes in the coming months.
Thanks for another great season, friends! 🙂
