EP 182: Personal Finance is Self-Care with Jill Sirianni of Frugal Friends Podcast


Happy Summer Solstice! It is the perfect time of year to let go of what isn’t working and set new intentions for the future.

How would the rest of 2023 feel if you prioritized sleep this summer? How would you feel if you prioritized moving your body? What would shift in your life if your family took on a lot more responsibilities around the house? What would you do with your free time?

Something to think about, right?

I ask myself these kinds of questions all the time. My belief is the deeper my self-knowledge, the deeper the life. One of my areas of interest is personal finance. People, especially women, tell themselves stories about money and many of our money issues can be traced back to childhood.

This week on the podcast I am talking to Jill Sirianni, co-host of the Frugal Friends podcast. In our chat Jill and I talked about how she went from being in debt to now working in personal finance. She spoke about how related personal finance and self-care are because both rely so much on shifting our mindset.

I hope you will give it a listen.

She’s passionate about frugality and its intersection with self-care and personal growth.
