  1. Love this! And the savings slide is such a genius idea, I love mixing movement with mindset, it's perfect! Thank you so much for these wonderful tips, I'm definitely going to check out her book!

  2. Thank you. I am currently reading Money Master the Game. And feverishly working to launch my website.

  3. I realized just now that my "Emergency fund" envelope is really my Curve Ball savings. I already have a separate savings account for emergencies that's a little over $3k, plus the emergency fund paper envelope that has $300. That $300 is the curve ball fund because when a curveball happens, that's the place I pull from first.

  4. I LOVE Amanda – great interview Marie! Amanda is a no-nonsense woman that walks the talk. She's a great resource. Love the 'curveball account'. I use an envelope system and have an envelope for 'Cat Fund', 'Car Fund', 'Household Maintenance', etc. I'm guilty of not putting enough aside for the future. I have an HSA account but rarely put the max allowed in. I'm taking Amanda's suggestion and setting up an automatic withdrawl to deposit monthly to my HSA. I may not always be able to save the maximum but you have to start to save! Thanks Marie! xxoo

  5. This is an up-to-date companion to two books that were very influential for me years back: Your Money or Your Life and The Tightwad Gazette. Thanks, Amanda, for updating these ideas and bringing your smart, fun voice to them! Wonderful! Love the Slide, too:)

  6. is there any account for joyfulness where I deposit some happiness and save it secure…and withdraw it when I need that so much in my life.

  7. Super interesting about how Amanda saw herself as an earner but not saver. I see myself as a saver but not an earner. We lead a very small, inexpensive life but the earning potential has not been there….. even have a bridge job.
    I loved this episode. I'm one of those moms who tell their girls every day to have and use their own money.

  8. Can't believe we've gotten so base as a society that someone who tells you to save money is now elevated to being a money guru. We're down to basics people, rocket science is no where within reach.

  9. I always thought that I have to pay off all debts before I can start to save.My eyes have been opened. Also, what I tell myself 'I'm a saver. ' makes a big difference. I always believed that the problem would be solved by earning more income. Not so.

  10. My biggest takeaway is the concept of a "50% job" or "bridge job" – I am working full time, raising two kids under 4, and would love to start a spiritual coaching business… but unless I take time away from my kids, which is already limited due to the FT job, or work in the middle of the night (when most coaching clients aren't available! At least in the US), this isn't very realistic for me. However, if I were to cut back to a part time job or start freelancing I could free up the time I need!

    So my action step is to find a part time job or freelancing opportunities that will free up more time for my passion project and to allow more energy to flow into my creativity rather than just a paycheck.

  11. The emotional attachment to the view of money is so important. I would get so nervous looking at my debt but once I started paying my debt, I actually felt better, and more confident! Thank you so much for this video and educating us about the importance of money in life. Media has definitely made it harder to feel like you don't have enough, so it's nice to be reminded of what you actually don't need,

  12. I just unsubscribed from a service I rarely used, and I'm going to quit attacking my credit card debt even though it's frustrating to see.

  13. Yes unfortunately I relate I love from client to client on a weekly daily basis, at this stage there is no other option, hoping I can open my mind and ideas to many fruitful possibilities, disciplined no again unfortunately, awesome talk some great distinctions Marie and Amanda, wow and here I was told via the experts online is to pay off your debts first sheesh, I don't have any savings or extra to draw on for curve balls etc, my income fluctuates greatly because I am self employed a small business, I feel like I need more advice and help with this issue but its a great start!

  14. Marie you are an angel.. Thank you so much for this interview..! xoxo.. Sending loads of love and light your way.. And everybody on your team..

  15. This is an episode that I will listen to again just to take notes. I have an idea of wanting to downsize into an apartment or tiny house with my family. The problems I face with that are I run my baking & catering businesses from home. I had a store and closed it almost 2 years ago. I also live in an area that is convenient for clients to pick up. With the housing market being so good right now in Montreal, I will make when selling but pay high when buying or renting for that matter. That means moving further and therefore making it harder on my clients. Let's through in the the price of gas is nuts here, so offering convenience to my clients and myself is important. I feel kinda stuck in how to make any move. Any thoughts ladies?
    Great episode ❤️

  16. Loved this video! What resonated with me was the fact that debt is not a bad thing in itself and I don’t have to pay it all off at once! Also, the fact that I don’t have to look or dress a certain way just because of my career was great advice. All of the information was great!

  17. Great ideas presented here: Questioning true likes by living blw means, helping yourself helps others, experimenting, gaming. All great

  18. Marie, fantastic video! I don't want to be superficial, but it was nice to hear about financial wisdom and intense savings from women. Really love your content and your guests! Here's to a better financial year cheers, but with water cuz we on a budget

  19. BEFORE I WATCHED THIS VIDEO, LIKE HOURS BEFORE, I TOOK 1000 PESOS FROM MY WALLET MONEY AND KEPT IT IN A JAR. I LABELED IT SAVINGS (I DON'T TRUST BANKS). THANK GOD I'M ALREADY DOING THE RIGHT THING BEFORE HEARING THIS ADVICE. I AM ALSO CURRENTLY BUILDING A HOUSE SLASH DESIGN STUDIO SO I ALREADY HAVE AN ASSET IN THE MAKING. RIGHT NOW, AM TRYING TO PAY SOME DEBTS, AND FINISH MY STUDIO WHILE SAVING 1000 WHEN I CAN. HMMM . I WISH THEY TEACH THIS IN SCHOOL. THANK GOD WE HAVE MARIE TO COACH US THROUGH LIFE FOR FREE. LOVE YOU GIRL, HOPING TO MEET YOU SOMEDAY AND PERHAPS BE INTERVIEWED BY YOU

  20. Much needed financial advice. Thank you! What's the difference between a curveball fund and an emergency fund?

  21. This was enjoyable to watch! Usually finances is such a dry topic but Amanda made it light, practical, helpful, and digestible! 🙂

  22. 10:57 of coursee#*&$*(@#(&$.ok, this is the first thing everyone ought to do before complaining about the living paycheck to paycheck. just focus on how much left at the end of month, and how to leverage that money at the end of next month. that it

  23. I love talking about money now too but people seems to think that i became obsessed about it. but i dont think so i just realized it a year ago that oh i need to know how to take care of my finances because i havent saves until i turn 42 and found out that when i got sick no one can help me but just me eventhough since i was on my 20s i have been supporting my family… and even helping my extended family…

  24. Saving money is great. But living in a 1 bedroom apartment with your 2 kids? Reminds me of the days in the hood. That's why I got an education, to NOT have to do that. lol.. anyways.. I think that you should live a simple life where money is not a problem and a person that is so frugal with their money in the end misses the point; you are still constantly thinking and worrying about money. I thought the goal is to not have to worry about money so that we can focus on more important, fulfilling parts of life.
