Summer is here, kids are out of school, people are headed out on vacations, and it’s the time of year when scarcity mindset starts to set in for many. Podcast host and Certified Financial Planner Lauryn Williams shares how this is playing out in her own life right now. She’s also jumping back into the podcast archives to bring back one of her favorite episodes to address scarcity mindset and financial literacy to help change the trajectory of where you want to go financially.

In the episode, Lauryn and guest Claudia Steer discuss:

  • What it’s like living with a scarcity mindset.

  • What it means to be “house poor” and the importance of understanding your mortgage options.

  • The “good debt vs bad debt” myth.

  • The importance of financial literacy when it comes to things like student loans, 401k, and financial planning.

  • The fact that financial mistakes don’t always equal frivolous spending.
