I was excited to join Thrive Global for a private, intimate evening of cocktails and conversation hosted by Arianna Huffington in partnership with Discover featuring a panel of top financial experts giving actionable steps for boosting our financial happiness in 2020 through mindful, values-driven spending and saving.
The talk was called A Financial Fresh Start: How To Reduce Money Stress Through Mindful Spending at Thrive’s Soho Loft, which was totally beautiful. We were greeted with healthy juice drinks with a variety of healthy options from Dr. Smood.
The panel included Winnie Sun, Tiff the Budgetista, Tim Herrera of the New York Times’ Smarter Living Section, Erin Lowry the Broke Millennial. Julie Loeger of Discover made the opening statement.
The panel discussed a lot of their backstory in their early life got them into writing about finances. Overall the general consensus was that purchasing items had an emotional component to it and we need to be more open about addressing them to make healthier decisions.
