Not too many people in American society feel comfortable talking about their personal finances. It’s somehow taboo to share how much money you are making, or to speak freely about your financial position.
Maybe this is part of the reason that so many entrepreneurs don’t open up about selling their businesses. They think that nobody wants to hear them complain about how much money they made.
In this week’s podcast, we aren’t holding back. Dan and Ian share how they feel about money, how much money they want, and what actual financial freedom looks like to them.
