Do you find yourself feeling guilty when you’re not busy? You’re not alone. And, believe it or not, this way of thinking and feeling runs in the family.

In this episode, Kate Northrup shares her story of overcoming personal and culturally inherited limiting beliefs and finding a loving relationship with time and money. She sheds light on the importance of self-care and how it’s not equal to sacrificing productivity. By doing less, we’re actually creating a more meaningful impact on our well-being and on our future generation’s well-being, too.

As an entrepreneur, bestselling author, and mother, Kate Northrup has built a multimedia digital platform called The Origin Company that reaches hundreds of thousands globally. She’s committed to supporting ambitious women to light up the world without burning themselves out. Kate teaches data and soul-driven time and energy management practices that result in saving time, making more money, and experiencing less stress. She’s the author of Money: A Love Story and Do Less and the creator of the Do Less Planner System. Kate’s work has been featured by The Today Show, Yahoo! Finance, Women’s Health, Glamour, The NY Times, Harvard Business Review, and more. She lives with her husband and their daughters in Miami.

Tune in if you want to learn how to start your own love story with money and time.



• “They are not separate. Our financial well-being is deeply connected with our emotional well-being.” (7:16 - 7:22)

• “Because historically, as women, there has been so much limitation and oppression, especially around financial empowerment, we have to understand that the ancestral trauma of the women in our lineage actually lives in ourselves.” (13:43 - 14:00)

• “I think it's a very common assumption that people hear do less and they automatically replace it with do nothing. So what it is, is doing less of the things that don't get you the results that you want so that you have more energy, time, and bandwidth for the things that do get you the results.” (21:47 -22:17) 

• “My work is not exclusively determined by what I do and how busy I am.” (23:28 - 23:33)

• “There's a level of stress and pressure that feels like home to you. And so if you don't address that and choose what home feels like to you, you will continue to recreate what home feels like to you through creating stress, dizziness, and pressure” (26:59 - 27:25)
