From Noble Poverty to my Brand of Joy

From Noble Poverty to my Brand of Joy

Carrie B. VanWinkle

For my first 40 years I lived a life of "noble poverty". When I heard that term I had a visceral reaction in my heart and my gut. I felt deeply understood, experiencing relief having named a condition I had lived with since I was a child. It is "the belief that there is virtue in not having money and that good people do not have it". People with this mindset live by the phrase "it is better to be good and poor than rich and evil". Now I understand that this mindset is based on a false dichotomy that you can have one or the other, and not both. Read More

The Magic of Money and Other Cautionary Tales

Cliff Feigenbaum
Founder, GreenMoney Journal
It began with a magic trick. When I was young a friend of my father's would pull a quarter out from behind my ear, and then make it disappear again. This became an apt metaphor for my relationship with money: one moment there and the next moment gone, feeding two powerful feelings about money: insecurity and lots of fear about never getting it back. My next memory of money was of being gifted with Kennedy silver half dollars on my birthdays (one for every year). Not realizing their worth, I spent most of them, but when I moved some years ago I found a stash of them in a small black bag. Read More
