This is such a success story. The wealthiest people are actually quite frugal. Love your journey.

Michael needs to come back on The Break and discuss investing! He's clearly intelligent and practical with his decision making when it comes to investing, and so many people want to start but don't know where to throw the first stone. Great episode!

This was such an eye-opening video! I learned so much about finances, especially how to navigate them when you add another person to the mix. I definitely just sent this video to my boyfriend so we can get to this level hahah

There is nothing wrong with living below your means. I do believe that when you learn to save young, it becomes a way of life.

Patricia, could you do a "what would Patricia do?" where you put yourself in the shoes of someone/couple living with very low income (minimum wage), touching on how you should spend money on (rent, food, leisure..) and eventually to grow financially

You don’t have to be broke to thrift. You say it but you’re not owning it. I worked for wealthy people who could literally buy anything but didn’t find anything fulfilling about materialistic things. She would go to consignment shops and thrift shops and she absolutely loved it. She was very much into saving the planet. An environmentalist. So she didn’t believe in littering the Earth with stuff. She didn’t even drive she would ride a bike and mass transportation. She’d recycle everything. Had a beautiful eclectic apartment just filled with thrifted and hand made things. Her apartment just told a story of who she was through all her secondhand finds. Just a work of art!! She passed away at 84 several years ago but she was such a moral citizen, she even left me money in her will.

This relationship is so healthy, to be so open and honest money-wise is refreshing.

As a newlywed (6months married), this video is relevant right now. We are just figuring out how to manage our money together. I'm not the saving type while my hubby is very responsible with money (he's also 8years older). I just finished school and started my first real job a few months ago at 30. I'm really trying to become financially literate, saving money so we can purchase a home in 3-4years. Thank you so much Patricia for your invaluable perspective. I've been following you for years and love the depth you are bringing to your channel. Keep thriving in all aspects of your life inchaAllah and inspiring women around the world. Much Love!

Instead of "secret" bank accounts, my husband and I have fun funds which we put a certain amount into each month. That way I can buy more brunch than he ever would, and he can buy more tech than I would - no judgment!

people need to have healthy conversation about money, and stop dodging it

Joint accounts: All of our bills are auto paid and it is easier having all the bills registered on the same account, instead of having some on mine and some on his. But we still have our own separate accounts.
