Good episode? Give it some love!
In this first episode, learn about how you can make an impact with your spending, or spend your money like you mean it. We'll review some of the challenges, introduce ideas that will be discussed in future episodes, and present some guidelines for evaluating companies and products. You'll learn how I got started paying attention to the companies I support, and how I make decisions when there are several competing forces at play.
