Content creator and influencer Murugi Munyi recently shared intimate details of her life on a financially incorrect podcast, shedding light on her decision to leave her first job and the challenges of managing her spending habits.
Munyi’s departure from her initial workplace was not driven by dissatisfaction with the job itself but by the magnetic pull of love. She met her now-husband, Zach, at work, and their relationship blossomed despite the challenges of working together.
“I met my husband at the place I was working. I left the place because I was in a relationship, and we were in the same department. it was awkward, not like I was reporting to him, but it was not just nice working with someone you have a permanent sensual connection with. the reality is that I can’t focus, that’s how I felt and so one of us had to leave, I trusted my ability to get another job. plus he had money. “
Beyond her professional journey, Murugi delved into her personal financial habits, highlighting a penchant for overspending. She admitted that this behavior hindered her from building tangible assets.
In a reflective tone, she shared her realization and the steps she is actively taking to address this issue with the guidance of a therapist.
“I spend money so much because I know it is coming back. Sometimes that can be a bit of an issue, and I am addressing it with a therapist currently as we speak. I tend to just overspend. Even when I got a well-paying job, I wasn’t saving. Now at least, I save, and I am also investing,” Murugi disclosed.
During her employment, Murugi’s husband played a significant role in handling financial responsibilities, covering expenses like school fees and rent. Murugi acknowledged feeling a lack of substantial assets to show for her past earnings and expressed regret for not prioritizing savings.
