423 | How This Reformed Spender Went From $336 To His Name To Getting his First Investment Property – Chat with Mathew & Olivia


Have you ever had just $336 to your name?  

 Half of today’s Summer Series duo has. 

As our last episode of 2022, we’re closing out the year with a seriously phenomenal Summer Series Story. 

Meet Mathew and Olivia – our first and only couple in our 2022/23 Summer Series!!  

Raised in two very different backgrounds, this couple had 2 very different expectations around money management and investing… 

With one a spender and the other a reformed saver, tune in to discover how this couple has settled their differences in money norms from emotional buying, to rising interest rates, and how they’re setting themselves up to achieve their next big goals in life. 

Another fantastic episode with TONS of great analogies (The trolley vs. The basket?? The Ego system vs the Ecosystem?!?), we’re closing out 2022 with a bang!  

A huge shout out to Mathew and Olivia for sharing your awesome story with the community. 😊  

Give it a listen now folks!  



P.S. As our last episode of 2022, we hope everyone has a safe and very Happy New Year from all of us on the Couch! See you in 2023 folks! 🎉🥳🎊
