Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares lessons from love and marriage.

Episode 680: Lessons from Love and Marriage by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less (Like For the Love With Jen Hatmaker Podcast).

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

One of the most important questions you can ask yourself is: "Why?" - Colin Wright

Episode 677: Why This Way by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle (Like Your Own Magic Podcast - Midlife Crisis and Quarterlife Crisis Help).

Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs.
Colin's a minimalist in that he owns very few things and is careful in how he consumes. He tends to buy less, but invest in quality when he does, and trends toward the same in relationships, business endeavors, and just about everything else.
He's left-handed, blue-eyed, scary good at Tetris, and can’t cook.

Mr. Money Mustache shares what Stoicism is and how it can turn your life to solid gold. This is Part 2 of 2.

Episode 672: What is Stoicism and How Can It Turn Your Life to Solid Gold - Part 2 by Mr. Money Mustache (Live Awake with Stoic Philosophy).

Mr. Money Mustache is a thirty-something retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal, yet awesome, life of leisure.
He and his wife studied engineering and computer science in Canada, then worked in standard tech-industry cubicle jobs in various locations throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s.
Then they retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of their peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.
