The release of the Barbie movie has captured the spotlight, with its colossal marketing budget dominating current events. This 2023 American fantasy comedy film brings to life the beloved Barbie fashion dolls in their first-ever live-action adaptation, featuring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Amidst the fantasy and comedy, the movie weaves profound themes of existentialism and the pursuit of self-identity, challenging societal norms and predetermined paths. In this episode, I will be sharing the financial lessons inspired by Barbie's illustrious career. 

With over 200 jobs to her name, Barbie exemplifies financial self-sufficiency, becoming a symbol of empowerment as she owns her home, car, and more. Through Barbie's journey, we learn the significance of staying true to our values and goals, refusing to be swayed by external pressures or comparisons. The movie highlights the importance of seeking support when needed, understanding that we don't have to navigate our financial journeys alone. So listen in to learn the value of embracing change, trusting your instincts, taking calculated risks, and finding joy in the process.
