Episode 285- Your Money or Your Life: Transform Your Relationship With Money & Achieve Financial Independence W/ Vicki Robin REWIND
Journey To Launch
Vicki Robins, the co-author of “Your Money or Your Life” has been one of the most influential visionaries of the Financial Independence movement. In the late 1960’s, with the advice of the late Joe Dominguez, Vicki reached Financial Independence and together they began to teach their revolutionary methods all over the nation. Their workshops featured the famous 9 steps to reach Financial Independence and eventually, Vicki and Joe were approached to turn their teachings into the book that we know today, "Your Money or Your Life". The book went on to be wildly popular, encouraging people to fight against the weight of consumerism and become a New York Times bestseller. Vicki also made two appearances on the Oprah Show with Oprah declaring that the book "would change your life". More than 25 years later, Vicki has written an updated version of the book for a new generation of people on the path to Financial Independence. I'm so honored to have Vicki on the show to discuss: How Vicki met the late co-author Joe Dominguez and how they worked to create the Financial Independence movement How their book “Your Money or Your Life” came to fruition and became popular. Why Vicki set out to create an updated version of the book The importance of relationships and how they create community wealth Why “freeing your mind” is the cornerstone of Financial Independence The definition of the “Enough Point” How to calculate your life energy and true hourly wage What Vicki believes to be the most transformational steps of the 9 steps from the book How Vicki believes the new version of “Your Money or Your Life” will impact the world in this new age The bigger picture of systemic barriers in the United States that make achieving Financial Independence more difficult Other related blog posts/links mentioned in this episode: Life Energy Calculator How We Saved $169,000 in 2 Years With the Help of This Budgeting System Buy Your Money or Your Life Check out my new personal website here.

The third set of What Could Possibly Go Right? kicks off with host Vicki Robin reflecting on past episodes, sharing her motivation for creating this series, and revealing what she hopes to find as we embark on a new set of interviews. Her thoughts include:That cultural scouts have this “carefully cultivated sense of looking squarely at reality and trying to pick a path, a critical path forward on behalf of the common good”.That cultural scouts have an educated sense of the future, with perspectives often gained through living at the margins.That justice is at the center of many interviews, whether it’s racial, economic, intergenerational, interspecies or ecological.That guests are framework-fluid, able to see more clearly by not being stuck in one story or worldview.Join our Patreon Community to receive bonus conversations with guests and "backstage" conversations between Vicki and other podcast hosts.
