I'm a former bank manger/officer I should know how to save, budget, manage- right?
You would think so, but unfortunately life happens, excuses happen.
The fact is we are not always good stewards with our money. One of our goals this year is to sell our current home and purchase a new home. We have discussed though that it is time for us to make changes and in order to do so we both have to recognize where to spend and save. It's not surprising to me that my primary money personality is a SAVER and my secondary is a SPENDER. I personally see this as a disaster. I love saving money, what a rush! Competitive ad shopping, couponing, online deals- I can save, save, save! But then I usually turn around and spend, spend, spend that savings on another savings item. What a vicious cycle. I recognize this and am going to have to make some changes.
I was offered the opportunity to read The 5 Money Personalities by Scott and Bethany Palmer and knew this was an opportunity for change. I am also able to help bless one of my readers with a copy of this book. Who wants it? Finish reading this post, then enter on the easy Rafflecopter form.
About The 5 Money Personalities:
The hidden key to a healthy relationship is not just managing money but understanding how the other approaches money.
Every couple argues about money. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for 40 years or dating for 4 months, money touches every decision you make as a couple—from the $5 cup of coffee to the $50,000 car. And when the two of you don’t see eye-to-eye on how much to spend or how much to save, that’s when arguments turn into ugly toxic fights that leave both persons feeling hurt and angry. It’s why money has become the #1 cause of divorce in the U.S. Obviously, something needs to change. The reason this crisis has not been addressed is because it has never been identified, defined, or given a name. Scott and Bethany Palmer, aka “The Money Couple,” have identified and defined this problem and offer concrete solutions to fix it.
Once you know your Money Personality, you can get to the root of money arguments and start really working together. You’ll discover what has an impact on your loved one’s money decisions, and you’ll learn how to talk about money in a way that’s actually fun! You’ll figure out how to put an end to money secrets and lies once and for all.
It’s not just about money management, and it’s definitely not just about overcoming debt. It is a whole new way of living that will change everything in your relationship. Tens of thousands have already been transformed. Are you ready?
