In this episode, we're talking about our relationships with money! We discuss our different upbringings and how it’s affected our perspectives on money – Davie shares his experience of growing up ‘poor’ in an Asian household, and Noel with his frugal tendencies that he continues to carry with him.
We unpack the hot topic of deciding whether to purchase property, rent or travel - and we also discuss the older generation vs. new generation money mentality and parents using their kids as a retirement plan.
Enjoy the episode!
