This week Jason speaks to IT worker Jonathan, who explains how he learnt the value of money and financial resilience doing paid work when he was a teenager.

Jonathan also explains how he and his wife's life values and priorities helped them ignore the siren calls of others to buy a bigger home, thereby becoming completely debt-free in their mid 30s.

And be sure to listen to the end when Jonathan explains why he stays humble and continues to improve his understanding of money.
