EP. 21 Keeping up with the Joneses: Parenthood Edition

 
[EP. 21] a sunny side up life podcast
 

In a society that loves to flash their material possessions on social media, the comparison game can be really hard…especially when you’re on a debt-free journey…and even more, if you’re a parent!

One of the hardest aspects of our debt-free journey was trying to raise our kids through it. Although it was hard, it wasn’t impossible! I’m sharing my best words of advice + encouragement on how to break free from the Keeping Up With The Jones mentality…from the perspective of a parent.

 
 


In this episode, I talk about:

  • How to break free from Keeping up with the Joneses…from a parent’s perspective

  • How to help your kids through the changes of a debt-free journey

  • How to overcome the parenting guilt

  • How to help your kids adjust to the lifestyle changes

  • How to take the abundance stance with your kids

  • My favorite tips for breaking free from the materialist lifestyle

  • Encouragement for getting through the holiday season with your kids on a budget

Memorable Quotes:

“We had our kids right in the middle of this…and we survived it.”

“You can still do this journey, even if you have kids.”

“Focus on the big vision. Focus on you, your family, your future, your present…not on what everyone else is doing.”
