The Power of Your Money Story & How to Create Real Change (with Dr. Daniel Crosby)

We all have a money story. A way in which we grew up thinking about money, either consciously or unconsciously and our money story has power over the choices we make and don’t make with our money.

Our podcast guest, Dr. Daniel Crosby, a psychologist, and a behavioral finance expert says that behavioral changes around money are tough because we all think our money story is normal because that’s all we know. So then the real question is, how do we create real change with our money?

How to Budget (the Right Way)

Six letters – BUDGET – probably one of the most despised combinations of letters in the English language, but that’s because you’re thinking about it all wrong. A budget isn’t a set in stone document that is some formal decree telling what you can and can’t spend your money on. In fact, in this reboot episode, you’ll learn how to budget, and why I’m giving you permission to throw out your budget with a few simple caveats.

What would you be willing to give up to get rid of your debt and save more money?
