Hello, friends! Welcome to another season of Budgets and Cents, a podcast co-hosted by Cait Flanders (formerly Blonde on a Budget) and Carrie Smith Nicholson (Careful Cents). If this is your first time listening, we’re glad you’re here! This is our fourth season of the podcast, but you can catch up on all the episodes you’ve missed through our episode guide.
It’s not very often that we have guests on the podcast, so today’s episode is extra special! With the recent conversations we’ve had about money mindsets, we thought it would be great to invite someone to help us dive a bit deeper into this stuff. Garrett Philbin is a personal friend of ours and works as a financial life coach. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York and runs a business called Be Awesome Not Broke where he teaches millennials how to use their money intentionally so they can do more of what they love.
If you listened to our episode about transforming your money story, you might remember that Garrett is the person who helped Cait first see the limiting money beliefs she had about how much money she could earn. He is also the friend who suggested we read the book, You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero!
In this episode, Garrett opens our eyes to some of our own money beliefs and how they affect our relationships. He explains that you can’t talk about money without talking about life, and what you believe becomes your reality. We’re so grateful Garrett was willing to share his personal money beliefs with us, as well as representing a male perspective on the podcast. There are a lot of great insights and advice for unlocking your own beliefs about money, so you won’t want to miss this one!
