TEBI podcast 48: Jonathan Clements on the appetite for “struggle and strife” that keeps us moving throughout life

In the eighth of a series of 12 TEBI episodes looking at meaning and money during later careers or second lives, Jonathan Hollow interviews writer and publisher Jonathan Clements.

Jonathan Clements enjoyed a hugely successful career as a personal finance writer for The Wall Street Journal, but as he candidly confesses in this interview, for a long time he was addicted to frugality and the future at the expense of life in the here and now. He also worked for Citigroup and lectured college students on personal finance - both experiences he looks back on with less than pleasure, as he explains. In his frank and highly articulate voice, he explains why he’s still restless in his early sixties, and what new challenges he is exploring. He then discusses the lively life stories and examples that emerge from his most recent book: "My Money Journey: how 30 people found financial freedom, and you can too."

This podcast series has been developed with financial planning firm Mulberry Bow. Based in London, they offer a highly personalised service to around 150 individuals and families. Robin Powell and Jonathan Hollow are very grateful for their enthusiastic support for "Second Lives”.
