EP19 - Virtue Challenge - Frugality w/ Stephen J. Caruso and Leo Gallegos

Stephen J. CarusoOliver Pappas and myself recently launched, hosted and completed a 13 Day Virtue Challenge hosted on Instagram Live.  Daily conversations exploring Ben Franklin’s 13 human virtues as a framework to elevate our clarity, up our performance and to inspire us to strive for excellence in life and in Faith.  We are relaunching all episodes on the Alto podcast!

In this conversation, Stephen hosts Leo as they explore and unpack the virtue of Frugality "Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing."


Leo is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ with roughly a decade of experience in the Financial Services industry who also currently works in fundraising for The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Key Episode Takeaways:
  • Frugality is not about being cheap, it's about investing in the things that matter most.
  • We are all called to simplicity (doing more with less) and generosity, and we have to discern what that looks like in our own lives.
  • Our contentment should come more and more from our relationship with the Lord, the relationships in our lives and the experiences that typically cost little to no money.
