Mastering your financial behavior can absolutely change your life. My point in sharing my story above with you is that we all
have a money "story" - messages, or even incidents from our past that informed how we feel
about money and how having it (and more to the point) not
having, makes us feel about ourselves. Our feelings and emotions about money lead to our behavior towards it and sometimes that's problematic.
Financial Behavior Coaching helps you discover the core of your "money personality" and whether money disorders or problematic money behaviors are keeping you from living a stress-free life in terms of money. I'd like to share with you some of the areas we can concentrate on when working together:
are you a spender or a saver? We do more than scratch the surface of questions such as this and go deeper to explore why you exhibit some money behaviors and how they may be keeping you from reaching your money goals.
- Do you make the income you feel represent your education, skills and talents?
- Do you need to stop
making financial decisions
that set you back?
- If you're on your own, are scared at the prospect of not making an income?
- If you're part of a couple, do you find you're having the same fights over and over about money want to be on the same page
- Do you want to be in a different place financially and live the lifestyle you want (and feel you deserve)?
- Are you ready to retire comfortably or do you need more or retire comfortably?
The way you feel
about money - whether you have more than enough, or not - affects how you prioritize and make decisions about money, including spending it, saving it, making it and sharing it. These feelings, generational attitudes and beliefs around money were formed long before you even realized the importance of it through your Family of Origin, that is, your parents. Unresolved issues around how you value your time and efforts concerning money often lead to relational issues in terms of how you may view your own worth and affect your relationships between you and your spouse or partner or even a trusted financial advisor.
You don't have to equate money with stress any longer. An understanding and awareness of why you feel as you can about money, what it means to you and your family and how to make change to improve problematic behaviors is within reach. Meditation and stress reduction training are offered as an option to my Financial Behavior work.
