What is wealth to you? Is it happy relationships with friends and family? Or, like Virgil, do you think that wealth is health? What about financial wealth? For so many people, the idea of financial wealth is something mystical—something that belongs to fantasy. But I genuinely believe that wealth is a game and, if we can teach people how to play it, it can be easier, less intimidating, and more enjoyable.

In this episode, I discuss the wealth game and explain its rules. I define financial independence and describe the different kinds of wealth. I also outline the different stages of financial wealth and underscore why your attitude toward money can affect your wealth.


“Money is no more than a magnifier of your true character.” - Justin Goodbread


This week on the Financially Simple Experience:

  • What wealth is and the different aspects of life it entails
  • The rules of the wealth game
  • Defining financial independence
  • The baseball diamond and the different bases of financial wealth
  • How your attitude toward money can affect wealth


Our Favorite Quotes:

  • “No amount of money is worth losing yourself. The moment you make this game of wealth about money, you’ve lost the game.” - Justin Goodbread
  • “Being financially independent means allowing your hard work and all your blessings—everything that has culminated at this point—to not just provide for yourself but also bless others.” - Justin Goodbread
  • “It’s a privilege for us to work: a blessing to be able to toil so we can get paid—an honest day's work for an honest day’s pay.” - Justin Goodbread
