Episode #21: Financial Security, Mental Health & Building for the Future

Welcome to Season 3! As each new year begins, it’s always a challenging time. We go from the highs of holiday parties and time with our family and friends, to the lows of New Year’s resolutions and getting back into our routines. I want to start the season by talking about a few fairly serious topics. Our current mental state in the pandemic, financial security, our limiting money mindset beliefs and the role we play in shaping future generations.

Timestamps: 0:00 : Intro

2:11 : New Year blues, sharing a reflection on life at Lake Michigan and a tribute to my late uncle, Jay

4:58 : Serious signs that our current emotional and mental state is more than just “tired of the pandemic”

7:13 : Increased rate of suicide on college campuses and a bill that seeks to prioritize funding for the shortage of school-based mental health professionals 10:27 : Our capitalist culture, what financial security means to different people

12:26 : Only 11% of first-generation students are graduating
