Work and Play with Nancy Ray

Dec 17, 2019

I am convinced that contentment is something we have to fight for and pay attention to. It's not something that comes naturally in our culture, when everywhere we look, we are hearing silent messages of you need this, you don't have enough, you have to buy this to be happy.

Today, I'm talking with Rachel Cruze all about contentment, and fun fact, this episode was recorded before she had her baby boy, and now she's a proud mama to two girls and a boy, just like me! Rachel is known for financial wisdom and her “work,” but I was so excited to chat with her about how she balances her work and her life as a wife and mother, and how contentment plays a part in both!

As a #1 New York Times best-selling author, host of The Rachel Cruze Show, and The Rachel Cruze Show podcast, Rachel helps people learn the proper ways to handle money and stay out of debt. She’s authored three best-selling books, including Love Your Life, Not Theirs and Smart Money Smart Kids, which she co-wrote with her father, Dave Ramsey. You can follow Cruze on Twitter and Instagram at @RachelCruze and online at, or

I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.
