Rich vs. Wealthy
One of our favorite podcast guests, author Morgan Housel, wrote a piece about “rich” versus “wealthy.” We had to share the quote below that stands out to us.
I want to be rich, because I like nice stuff. But what I value far more is being wealthy, because I think independence is one of the only ways money can make you happier. The trick is realizing that the only way to maintain independence is if your appetite for stuff – including status – can be satiated. The goalpost has to stop moving; the expectations have to remain in check. Otherwise, money has a tendency to be a liability masquerading as an asset, controlling you more than you use it to live a better life.
