Your Money or Your Life

Your Money or Your Life: Reaching For Simplicity
And Financial Integrity

Join Carol Pimentel, local counselor, organizing consultant, and community advocate, as she leads you through a journey to rediscover the difference between money and true fulfillment.

Carol views over-consumption as a cultural addiction. She brings awareness to ways we unwittingly assume attitudes and beliefs about money that result in entrapment in a wheel of perpetual need to produce more income to feed consumerist habits.

Using the best-selling book Your Money or Your Life, by Joe Dominquez and Vick Robin, she provides tools to change your spending habits and your life for the better. You will learn how to:

  • Cut debt and develop savings
  • Determine how much is "enough" vs. habitually acquiring more
  • Reconsider your material priorities and live well for less
  • Clariry your values and align financial choices with this "bottom line"
  • Develop awareness about how your purchases impact the planet

Since 1980 The New Road Map Foundation has taught a nine step program for financial integrity. Over one million people have sought out this program, lowering their expenses by over 20%, eliminating debt and developing savings—and they feel better about their lives. They are living proof that a high quality of life doesn't rest on an ever-higher standard of consumption. Carol Pimentel is a volunteer speaker for the foundation.

This program is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Friends of the Swannanoa Library.
