254: Frugal Friends- An interview With Jen Smith


Who is Jen Smith?

Jen and I first met through Total Life Freedom. She is a personal finance expert and co-host of the Top-Rated Frugal Friends podcast. Since paying off $78,000 of debt over two years, she has been on a mission to help people spend in alignment with their values and live for today while saving for tomorrow. Jen is also the author of two best-selling books on controlling your spending and paying off debt—The No Spend Challenge Guide and Pay Off Your Debt for Good.

“…it just goes to show that you never really know what your dream job is like. You just don’t know until it happens to you.”

“We just think of the person asking the question and try to help them as much as possible from whatever angle we think they might be coming at it from.”

“…rather than fishing for back links and trying to compete with big fish, I think that’s the best advice—just being most as helpful as possible for the clients you already have.”

“Just go do the stuff people are asking you for.”
