For The Love Of Money – 5 Steps To A Stronger Relationship With Money

Why Cultivating A Positive Relationship With Money Is The Highest Form Of Self-Care

If money were your lover, how would you describe your relationship?  M. I. A., non-committal, or head over heels in love?  When I lead a “Let’s Talk Money for Women Only™” workshop, I open with this question.  The knee-jerk reaction for many attendees is a nervous giggle.  Relationship with money?  It’s an in-animate object, what are you talking about?

Results Leave Clues

If there is a gap between where you want your finances to be today and where they are, your relationship with money needs work.  Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Does your debt balance make you nervous, or cause you to lose sleep?
  2. Have you asked for a raise, or if self-employed, raised your rates?
  3. Do you spend money on others before buying what you want and/or need?
  4. Can you have a money conversation without stress?
  5. Have you had a relationship break down because of money disagreements?

If you answered “yes” to questions 1, 3, or 5, and “no” to questions 2 or 4 you will benefit by developing a better relationship with money.
