Podcast: Serina Bird on the frugalista’s way to wealth

If you’re looking for many more ways to live a joyful abundant lifestyle, you can’t go past today’s guest Serina Bird.

Serina is a former diplomat, author of The Joyful Frugalista, host of The Joyful Frugalista podcast and a money coach. 

As a self-professed frugalista, she has successfully gone from a single mum to a millionaire and achieved a net worth of over $2 million.

Serina is passionate about her frugal lifestyle and encouraging others to save more because she sees so many people struggling with their financial situation.  As she says, Australia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Yet everywhere she sees people struggling with money: struggling in their relationships, struggling to buy enough things to keep their kids happy, struggling in jobs they don’t like but are too scared to leave, or struggling in relationships that are seriously bad but they can’t afford to leave.  

But Serina knows that life’s abundant. And she also knows that when you respect and understand money, it almost magically transforms itself into something that grows and just keeps growing.

Serina’s vision is to encourage you to become a frugalista – spending less and saving more (with joy) on your path to financial empowerment. 

In our wide ranging discussion today, Serina shares her tips on:

  • What is a frugalista and how will becoming one help you live the good life?
  • How to look flash without the cash
  • And how to give yourself an immediate pay rise right now without needing to ask your boss 

And if you really want to get the full juice on how to transform your relationship with money and your life using easy hands on practical tools then do yourself a big favour and buy a copy of her  book The Joyful Frugalistagrow your cash, be savvy with your money and live abundantly.
