Episode 185: How can you give back while saving money? We’re talking about the joys of giving while pursuing financial independence, and a few ways to be a giver.
One of the most significant mindset shifts when pursuing financial independence is learning the value of giving. When you start to realize that you can live on less, you find that you’re able to give more to the causes that matter to you.
Find Your Cause
Think of the causes that matter to you. It could be anything from your local church to a non-profit that supports something that impacts your life. Giving to a cause that aligns with your values is guaranteed to make you feel good.
Set Aside Money to Give
Both Kevin and Sean work giving into their budget. Consider using separate accounts or working automation into your banking to ensure the cause you care about is cared for before you spend.
Pay it Forward
One of the best ways to be a giver is to pay it forward. Consider surprising someone by paying for their order in the drive through or giving an extra generous tip to a minimum wage worker. These small actions ultimately mean nothing when calculating how much money ends up in your bank account. Yet it can make a big impact on someone’s day.
