She’s an account executive. He’s a stay-at-home dad who quit being an electrical engineer to take care of their two daughters, and because the frequent travel just wasn’t working for the family. Sethi sits down to interview them and we quickly wonder if he’s not only a financial guru, but a marriage counselor, because Matt and Amani start fighting right away, about bigger issues than money – how they communicate, self-worth and who controls what around here, very sensitive stuff like that. Are we surprised? No, because if you’ve never had a fight about money with a significant other that didn’t turn into a fight about bigger things than money, then you exist in a culture that has yet to embrace a currency-based financial system. Sethi gives Matt and Amani “homework” – a journal full of questions to address – which he does for everyone he consults with.

According to Entrepreneur, Sethi has a net worth of around $20 million. While a lot of financial advice out there tells you to stop wasting money on $5 lattes, Sethi believes you should enjoy all the lattes you want.
“A $5 coffee is not going to change your financial life. But learning how to automatically invest, how to select the right asset allocation, and how to negotiate a $15,000 raise will,” Sethi says on his website. Sethi has specific money rules he recommends that can help people get their spending under control and build their wealth. “Take all the decisions that you have to make in a given month — should I buy this? Should I buy that? Should I return this?” Sethi told CNBC Make It. “Roll them up into a few simple money rules that make it really easy to make decisions.”

Matt and Amani's overspending led to them depending on overdraft protection to cover their purchases. Overdraft protection accounts typically cost fees and high interest. Sethi gave the couple a “Design Your Rich Life” journal to work on together.
