The Emotional Complexities of Living With Wealth

Episode 6: The Emotional Complexities of Living With Wealth

We all appreciate that being poor and struggling to make ends meet is difficult, but what about being wealthy? Is it really as desirable as we might think? Does it solve our problems and make us happy?

I invited Alice for an honest conversation about what it’s like to grow up in a wealthy family and to live with wealth. It’s certainly not a very woke subject, but it has a place in this series of conversations. Challenges go both ways and life is life whomever you are. Alice adds a thoughtful commentary on the nuances of living with wealth; its freedoms and complexities.
