Episode Info:

Are you living your life with intention and making decisions that align with your deepest values every day? Or do you feel like your life is running on autopilot and you don’t have time to stop and think about your values, let alone whether you’re living in alignment with them?

In this week’s episode, we speak to the wonderful Sarah Von Bargen and explore what it’s like to live an intentional life and how this is one of the most self-loving things you can do. Sarah is a writer and blogger who teaches people how to spend their time, money and energy on purpose. She does this through her writing, coaching, workshops and online courses she’s created such as Bank Boost, Habit School and The No Grocery Challenge.

We talk about what it means to live with intention and why getting to know yourself really well and noticing what makes you happy are some of the simplest and most powerful things you can do for your life. We also discuss the “authenticity tax” - a concept Sarah came up with to describe the price you pay for choosing to live a life that’s true to you, which might not be the conventional life that others expect you to choose.

We explore the connection between self-love and money and how your relationship with money is often a reflection of the relationship you have with yourself. Sarah talks about the ways that people often use shopping as a stand-in for self-care and she shares a resource she’s created to help people stop buying stuff they don’t need. We also talk about money shame and why talking openly and honestly about your money (when appropriate), can really help to reduce the shame and constant comparing.

Sarah gives a lot of great information in this episode, and we really encourage you to check-out her resources below.
