AJ and Chris got our mind on our money and our money on our mind. This week we look at part 4 of our PNW State Of Mind Series and we are looking at finances, debt, and ways to keep the Benjamins in our wallets.

We're playing around with  work-life balance and how we can keep it in balance. How much social media takes up our time? Are all those notifications at work making you work better? And on that commute, do you work more time than you are paid? Listen to AJ and Chris talk about the 8-8-8 method of looking at time in your day; 8hrs of work, 8hrs of play, 8hrs of sleep. And how time is being balanced in the US, UK, and France...all that a more on this episode of The Bellingham Podcast.
