Aside from fear, there’s only one thing standing in the way of you living your ideal life: money.

To start, it’s hard to let go of the steady paycheck and take a chance on a different way of doing things. In this episode of the Wandering Workers Podcast we talk with comedic financial speaker Colin Ryan about how to overcome this barrier.

In addition to being a financial expert, Colin has first hand experience taking a risk to create the life he imagined. Drawing from his experiences as a stand up comedian, his idea was to use humor to address what is normally a serious topic. The result is that he talks honestly and openly about a subject that normally makes people uncomfortable, and his advice resonates with anyone who’s ever dreamed of something bigger.

His message that “your ability to manage your money directly affects your ability to have the life you want” is at the heart of our conversation.

In this episode you’ll learn …

  • The biggest thing you can do right now if you want to make a change in your life
  • The ups and downs of working for yourself
  • How to overcome self-doubt
  • What your most important resource will be when you start your own business
  • How to build momentum
