AOA Small Change 002: What Does the Term “Money-Empowered” Mean to You?

In this second installment of our shorter-format episodes — which we call “Small Change” — I explore the term “money-empowered.” This concept is a stated goal of The Art of Allowance (Heck, it’s part of the subtitle!), and its definition is a question I ask of almost all my podcast guests. In this episode, I present you with four interesting responses and why I think each one of them is meaningful. Listen to what these contributors have to say, and think about what the term “money-empowered” means to you.
