This is episode 70 and today I’m here with Matt Matheson talking about giving.

A husband to an awesome wife and father to 3 little munchkins, Matt’s an educator and the founder of Family Money School, a site that is all about helping kids and the parents who love them become money rock stars!!

Our Little Obsession

I wanted to let you know that the Sage Money course is about to go on sale the first week in January so you can start your new year on a fresh footing of toward financial freedom (phew, that was a healthy dose of unintentional alliteration).

Stephanie Wauters recently completed the course and left a review saying, “I took this course with my husband and we both learned a ton and feel we are allied together to reach our financial goals. Given the knowledge in this course can help a person save literally millions over their lifetime we cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you Rachel!”

Thank you Stephanie. So be sure you are on my email list so you get those invitations for the courses’ annual sales (you can opt in here) or mark your calendar now to jump into Sage Money for New Years.


Financial Freedom: We explain how giving fits into financial freedom.

Strategies: We share the strategies we use for the mechanics of giving.

Kids: We go over how to encourage our children to be giving.

Non-Monetary Giving: We go over some ways our families have been generous outside of financial donations.


We answer the question, “How can we maintain clear boundaries when people might take advantage of our generosity?” from the Sage Family Village.

I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.
