How do you define wealth?
It’s a common question, and a largely personal one as well. Even though our world is driven by consumerism with its standard ideals for what “success” looks like, the reality is that everyone places different values on different things.
In today’s episode, host Sandrine is joined by D.B. Irwin, Heather Ussery Knight, and Pierre de Vésian from the Puttyverse as each share their unique perspectives about money. At the core, the discussions focus on what it means to make life liveable, and how to keep the lights on while recognizing your value in the world. They also talk about how who you are and what you do at any given time don’t need to be the same thing.
Learning to cultivate a perspective for how money truly interacts with the world can make you a savvy creative and help give you skills to maximize your wealth in so many ways.
