We’re Garrett Philbin and Sarah Li Cain, two money coaches (well, Sarah’s also our resident finance writer badass) who learned a long time ago that you can’t talk about money without talking about our entire lives.
Lets face it: money is taboo. We’d rather discuss our sex lives or religious beliefs than our finances. Yet by not talking about something as powerful and important as money, we have nowhere to share our fears, insecurities, hopes and wants.
Beyond The Dollar is a place where we make money more approachable by having frank and honest conversations. Each episode, we candidly discuss a topic at the intersection of money and life, drawing from our own experience and that of their guests. Our goal is to create a space where wins, failures, happiness, shame and everything in between gets its turn.
- We want to show you that talking about money also means talking about life choices.
- We firmly believe that money is meant to enhance every aspect of your lives. Let’s have conversations to align money with your values you so you can live a more intentional and fulfilling life.
- There are no stupid money questions. Everyone can – and is welcome – to join in on the conversation.
- Nobody is perfect. Sharing mistakes is as important as sharing successes. We’ll be open and honest about our experiences in order to help you learn, share and grow.
- Every belief, thought and conversation you have around money impacts your relationship with it. We’re here to help you cultivate a confident money mindset so you become more financially empowered and live a happier life.
About Garrett Philbin
Garrett is a Financial Life Coach and founder of Be Awesome Not Broke, where he helps people feel more financially confident and in control of their lives. He is fascinated by the intersection of money and emotions, and that while money drives almost all of our decisions almost everyone is scared to talk about it. This fear, guilt and insecurity around money makes people feel dumb and make poor decisions, and so his goal is to bring money out of the closet and be a topic we can start to talk about, openly and honestly.
