This week I have a return guest who last appeared on the show in 2016 (Episode 64)! Jason Vitug is back on the show to give an update on what he’s been up to these past 7 years, including all the details of his new book, Happy Money Happy Life–A Multidimensional Approach to Health, Wealth, and Financial Freedom.
Jason is a wellness advocate, bestselling author, entrepreneur, producer, and founder of the financial wellness website Phroogal. His first book, You Only Live Once: The Roadmap to Financial Wellness and a Purposeful Life explored how to get your financial life together through budgeting and money mindfulness. This time around Jason is tackling mental health and how it affects all aspects of our life, including money in his new book, Happy Money Happy Life.
In this episode, Jason shares the 8 wellness dimensions and how they relate to our mental and financial well-being. He also explains the difference between mental and emotional health and why he is a big advocate for mental health. I’m so happy to talk about such an important topic on the show and it was great to have Jason share the insights he gained from researching for his new book!

I haven't done a solo episode in over a year, so I thought the perfect time to do one would be to help kick off a new season of the podcast. In this episode, I wanted to share how my 2023 got off to an odd start and how that led me to reflect on what I want from 2023 in both terms of my life and my business.
I’m also answering lots of questions that were asked over on my Instagram and my email list, including some personal ones like how I feel about my money, especially with a recession looming and interest rates continuing to rise. Other questions include, how to use a money windfall and how to talk to your partner about money in your relationship.
Even though we’re in February, it is never too late to set some goals and intentions for the new year, especially when your finances are concerned. I hope this episode helps to give you that post-January boost to keep going so that you can have a great year!

The More Money Podcast is back for Season 16! I can’t wait to kick off the new season by interviewing TWO guests, which is a rarity and one of the reasons that I’m so excited to share this episode at the top of the season! Jen Smith and Jill Sirianni, co-hosts of The Frugal Friends Podcast, are joining me today to talk about debt and why frugality is considered the bad F-word in finance.
Jen and Jill are no strangers to debt since they’ve paid off a combined total of nearly $140k with their husbands. They approached their debt differently than some of the typical financial advice you'll hear the "gurus" sharing, which proved to them that personal finance solutions are not always one size fits all. Jen’s journey even inspired her to write The No-Spend Challenge Guide, a best-seller on Amazon. They now host Frugal Friends Podcast to help people overcome their impulse spending and transform the habits that cause them to overspend to live a better, more financially free life.
In this episode, Jen and Jill share their debt journeys and the shame and guilt that comes with paying them off. We also talk about how habit-forming and learned behaviours from childhood play a big role in your finances. Lastly, Jen and Jill share why FOMO and social media can be a leading cause for overspending and how to counteract the need to spend by figuring out your "Why" for your money.
