When Did You Feel Wealthy? Or Rich? | MHFI 203

Doug and Carl delve into the differences between being “rich” and being “wealthy”, discussing their own journeys to financial independence and the pivotal moments when they each felt rich and then wealthy.  They reflect on pieces of financial advice, how to feel wealthy, reclaiming an abundance mindset from scarcity, and the importance of evaluating personal happiness.  Both also share anecdotes about their life experiences, underscoring the inherent value in simplicity and their changing perceptions on spending as their net worth increased.
