Each week BusinessDesk and the NZ Herald’s Cooking the Books podcast tackles a different money issue. Today, it’s a woman who goes to work so that she can donate her salary. Hosted by Frances Cook.

Being focused on money can sometimes have a bad reputation.

People can decide it means you’re greedy, or self-interested.

Well today’s guest hit financial independence and decided she still wanted to work so she could give away much of that income to causes she cares about.

It’s become a way for her to make an impact on the world and give it a nudge in the right direction. Here’s how she did it.

For the latest podcast, I talked to Sarah Woodfield.
