Dreamcatcher: Posts and podcasts that inspired me this week

I read and listen to a lot of personal finance (and not-so-personal-finance) content. I’m always amazed at the great work there! Here are some of the posts and podcasts that caught my attention this week.

When Being in Debt is Better – Millennial Dollar

Sometimes a post is so strikingly personal you have to pause and reflect. This one on using debt to completely rebuild your life during a battle with alcoholism is visceral and raw in ways you don’t often see in finance blogs.

If you read my post on how I budget using a spreadsheet and individual savings accounts for my medium-term goals, then you know I’m a fan of this approach. Dave over at Married With Money has some additional thoughts on why it’s such a powerful way to connect you with your money.

Tim Ferriss: Why You Should Define Your Fears Instead of Your Goals – TED Talks
