Graham Hill - Can You Really Live on Less - Goldstein on Gelt



Often the financial world advocates “more money” and “more growth” – but can you live with less?

Graham Hill is a firm believer that you can live on less. Graham’s awesome TED Talk, “Less Stuff, More Happiness” set off a lively debate. He shares his unique view on society’s need to get more money, more power, more stuff…just “more” in general. Yet, studies show that beyond a certain minimum income level, people’s happiness levels don’t increase the more money they earn. Doug and Graham discuss why having more money doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have more happiness, and why the idea less = happiness is true for many people.

Less Stuff More Life with Courtney Carver

Less Stuff More Life with Courtney Carver



Steve: Welcome to all our, Becoming Your Best Podcast listeners, wherever you might be in the world today!

This is your host, Steve Shallenberger. I am so excited for the guest that we have on our show today. She's helping people across the world to live a simpler, more balanced life... Welcome Courtney Carver!

Courtney: Hi, Steve. Thank you.

Steve: This is gonna be fun folks. I'd like to give a little introduction before we jump right into this interview. Our listeners know about Becoming Your Best. That The 12 Principles of Highly Successful Leaders is built on 40 years of research of leaders that have sustained excellence. What I found in that research, I interviewed hundreds of people, that they weren't perfect. But they were among the very best of what they did across the world. The one thing I did observe is that there were 12 Principles of Leadership always present. These are things that we can learn like playing a sport or baseball, as we practice we can get better.

Part of those, have to do with creating excellence and leadership of teams, organizations, or one life. Another part has to do with creating outstanding relationships. How do we create a culture that creates excellence? Well, the last part has to do with becoming your best type living. And they set their part, their selves apart from others. Well, that is where Courtney Carver comes in. That's why I'm so excited to have her, as one of those principles. I've seen over and over and over again, that highly successful leaders figure out how to live in peace and balance. That they could sustain their performance over a long period of time. They can enjoy the journey.

It's going to be interesting because Courtney has some great ideas about this. For our listeners, did you know that over half of Americans are living beyond their means? That 78% live paycheck to paycheck. 90% buy things they can't afford. So to what end, we've all heard the old adage that you can't buy happiness. So why do we have or feel we need so much stuff?

Courtney has a wonderful book coming up called Soulful Simplicity: How Living with Less Can Lead to So Much More. So I can't wait about this. We're gonna talk about it on the show today, Courtney. I guess is it coming out a little later this year?

Courtney: It is. December 26th is the publication date.

Alternative American Dream: less house, less stuff, more travel

Last year, Peter and Mary Rowan found the perfect home to provide more space for their family of five. Just as they were ready to put in an offer, they got cold feet: Did they really need the mortgage? Or the extra space? And what about that dream of living abroad?

They decided not to make an offer, fix their current home to fit their needs and follow their dream of living in Europe.

By the fall of 2010, Peter had quit his corporate job- after 18 years as a corporate weenie-, they'd sold a car and gotten rid of enough stuff to rent out their home for the year.

With just a suitcase per person, they took off for Barcelona to fulfill their dream of living as a family abroad.
