A podcast for people who want a little more out of life.

 

Have you ever wanted to do something different, but you feel…stuck?

This is exactly how we felt. We’re two corporate professionals living a pretty typical, fine life. Doing exactly what we’re told we should do.

But as the days flew by — and blended together — we realized that life was too short to settle for fine. Now we’ve started a project to figure out what we want to do and how to make the money work.

This is The Worth Project: a show about money, life, and what makes it good. Each Tuesday join in for honest conversations about money, minimalism, mindset, and living a great life — and the small changes we can make to get big results. Because it’s time we all start living a life that’s better than fine.

This is our worth project.
