Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Sep 27, 2022

Welcome to the self-care zone!


I begin this show with a chat about anger—and how I’m learning to manage mine, long forged from a tough childhood and a tendency to .. react things. May you find some courage and comfort here!


My wonderful guest this week is the awesome Chris Hutchins who has learned how to hack his way through life—and is eager to share what he learned.


I was pretty darn gobsmacked as he went on about all kinds of ways to use credit cards to grab entire free vacations, how to source literal free money for yourself (super clever … and of course, completely legal) and how to really truly save when planning your vacations. Such clever tips!


Among other things, I learned:


  • Can a vacation actually BE frugal? (Yes!)
  • How to optimize travel to be the best it an be
  • What if your next vacation was … free?
  • What about ‘credit card perk overwhelm’
  • Chris’s preferred credit cards
  • Google search results—and the reality of those results
  • How long does it take to accumulate points for a vacation?
  • The lowdown on affordable hotels
    … and even Chris’s favorite free money hacks!

May you enjoy as much as I did,
