“I think the idea of scarcity really permeates the culture of consumerism.”
– Paco de Leon, Founder of The Hell Yeah Group.
If we all have more access to financial information and advice than ever before, you’d think we’d all be making better financial decisions for ourselves. So why is it that so many of us still struggle with making the right choices and self-sabotaging our financial futures? That’s what my guest Paco de Leon and I will be discussing on the More Money Podcast today, plus more from her book Finance for the People: Getting a Grip on Your Finances.
Paco is an author, illustrator, and host of the podcast Weird Finance. She also founded The Hell Yeah Group, a financial firm dedicated to inspiring creatives to engage with their personal and business finances, and Hell Yeah Bookkeeping, a bookkeeping agency for creative businesses.
In this episode, Paco shares why she actually never wanted to write a book and what changed her mind (and I’m so glad she did). She also shares why scarcity and consumerism go hand in hand and how our history with debt started well before the introduction of money. We cover so many topics and I can’t wait for you to listen!
