Does it seem like you two keep having the same argument over and over? Do you feel like you're spinning your wheels with money? You're not alone.
Today we're going over how we form our money habits and how we can change them for the better to finally achieve your big goals together!
Mindsets and Money Stories
It's funny how unaware we can be about our money habits. When we first began talking about money, it was a real eye-opener and not just because of the numbers.
Here we were ready to spend our lives together and we realized that we had completely different views when it came to money.
But digging into how we pick up those habits and figuring a way to work with what we have so to speak is somewhat tricky - which is why I'm really happy Jen Hemphill here.
She's an accredited financial coach and author of her new book, Her Money Matters: The Missing Truths From Traditional Money Advice.
It's a fantastic book and one aspect I really appreciated is how Jen dives into mindsets and money stories.
In this episode we discuss:
- how your past can influence how you handle finances now - for better or worse
- how to help your spouse to open up and understand their money mindset
- a tip for getting them onboard
Hope you enjoy!
