  1. I love the hesitation/slightly uncomfortable sound you can hear in Chi-Ming’s voice when he acknowledges that they made the decision to give their savings away knowing he and his wife were going to buy a house. It’s like he knows the idea is kind of crazy, and exactly the opposite of what every financial advisor would advise when you’re getting ready to buy a home. I’ve listened to this episode a few times, and it still strikes every time I hear what they’ve done. And, it makes me wonder if my convictions were pulling me to give away all of my savings, could I actually do it??? Not so sure…
