[013] – BE GOOD AND DO GOOD WITH YOUR MONEY

This is another 're-purposed' interview from last year that I recorded with Lisa Stanley, co-founder of Good with Money - a website about "helping you become good with money while doing good with money too".  

I don't know about you, but it took me far longer than it should have done to realise that the money in my bank might be being used to fund all kinds of businesses and organisations that didn't align with my values. And that my money might not be working as hard as I am for a fairer, healthier world.

Lisa and I dive into this, and Lisa shares some top tips for how to really harness the power of your money.
