Key Quotes:

  • “No matter where you are, if you are kind of being frugal living below your means, ignoring what the people around you are doing, those folks tend to build wealth faster than those who spend everything that they have.” – Sarah Fallaw
  • “The more disciplined we are, when we have a plan, the better off we are. If we’re able to create a plan that makes sense, that has a goal that’s meaningful to you, and you’re able to be disciplined in following the plan, you have a better chance of success.” – Sarah Fallaw
  • “What can we automate and what will you be responsible for? I think that by doing that, make sure nothing slips through the cracks. But then, you’ve got this discipline in place even if it’s something that’s using technology, it’s a discipline.” – Sarah Fallaw
