040 The entrepreneurial teacher: building wealth in line with core values

On this episode of The Your Money Sorted teachers’ podcast, I have a conversation with Joanne Howard from Adventures After Teaching. Jo, an entrepreneurial teacher turned career coach, shares her insightful journey and perspectives on money, highlighting key moments that shaped her relationship with finances. 

The discussion revolves around Joanne's childhood memories, including visits to the bank with her mother and the impactful influence of her father’s  entrepreneurial spirit and his experience as a business owner. Joanne provides valuable insights into her current approach to money, emphasising the importance of time and balance in both personal and professional life. 

We explore the significant role of values in shaping spending habits and the impact of money on life choices and experiences. The conversation delves into Joanne's approach to teaching her children the value of experiences over material possessions, fostering an entrepreneurial mindset from a young age. The episode concludes with gratitude and an invitation to explore Adventures After Teaching for valuable resources and support in navigating career transitions and building entrepreneurial skills.
