From Sunday Brunch Cafe …
Our society’s narrative is of heroes and villains. It rings true for money too. We praise the virtue of financially sound decisions and we vilify of financially dumb moves.
In media, we see stories of responsible & resourceful people paying off tens of thousands in debt, saving 50%+ of their income. Or we see the opposite, foolish celebrities who filed for bankruptcy, how winners of jackpots end up destitute. There is a lot of pressure to be “good with money” and to do the “responsible thing”.
But what about financially dumb moves made for the right reason?
