On this episode of Queer Money, we get a bit personal and share some of our recent personal journey while we were house sitting in Columbia, PA. As a gay couple, this was a difficult and trying time for us in a small town that we felt uncomfortable being our true selves. We came into 2019 feeling #likeaboss. We were in talks with a bank to do a lucrative Queer Money Live tour and had the support of a number of corporate partners leading up to the launch of our Credit Card Pay Off Course. And then it all went south. Just a few weeks into 2019, the tour fell through and the course, which we had expected to cover our living expenses for the year, didn’t get us through the month of January. The depression that followed made it painfully clear that our self-worth and spiritual health were not as strong as we thought. Today on Queer Money, we’re pulling back the curtain on the challenges we’ve faced so far this year and explaining how house sitting in small-town Pennsylvania made us realize just how much self-development work we have left to do. We discuss what we recognized about our self-worth being attached to external factors and share some of the books that have supported our ongoing spiritual journey. We also offer insight into the new morning routine that has brought us together as a couple and facilitated our personal growth, reflecting on how far we’ve come in the last few months—despite our challenging financial situation. Listen in to understand that the voice in your head is NOT you and learn how to let go of the false belief systems that don’t serve you and be an LGBTQ force for good in the world!
