Achieving the American Dream? Yes, It Is Still Possible! Interview with Mark and Lauren Greutman from I Am That Lady and The Simpler Happier Life Podcast RPF0108

In our current culture, it's easy to become discouraged and feel as though the American Dream is out of reach for the common person. Is it easier to achieve now than in the past? Is it harder? Let's leave that debate for another day. Frankly, it doesn't much matter in your individual situation.

What does matter is whether it's possible to improve your circumstances and to pursue your version of happiness.

My guests today are proof that the American Dream is alive and well for some people.

In many ways, Mark and Lauren Greutman embody an oft-repeated scenario. Married young, four small kids, strongly middle class circumstances, mild to moderate overspending and being stuck in circumstances that felt beyond their control.

And yet, a few years after their wakeup experience, they're in a very different place.

Mark recently left his job in the corporate world and he and Lauren now work together in the family business.

Many of the tools we talk about each day in the show were instrumental in their journey and you'll hear how they are all interwoven.

Enjoy!

Joshua
