Have you ever wanted to make a career switch or start your own business? Did you not act on it because of your finances?

As frustrating as it can be right now, the good news is that you can improve your finances and give yourself some more options.

It's not easy, but it can be done.

I recently interview Jason Vitug, Phroogal founder and author of  You Only Live Once: The Roadmap to Financial Wellness and a Purposeful Life.

Besides being encouraging, Jason lays out how you can rework your finances to move closer to your goals. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, please check out his book.

Finding His Path to Financial Wellness

Once he had the space and worked through his finances, he found a new path.

Seeing how access to information and knowing the power of community, Jason began Phroogal.

If you want to hear all of Jason's story, please listen to the rest of the podcast interview.

  1. This has been on my mind lately. I recently left a good paying job for another good but slightly less paying job. Because I have more than one income stream I was able to make the decision to leave based on what job would make me happier versus what kind of salary I need to survive.
