How Do Financial Experts and Vulnerability Fit in Your Money Journey?

How Do Financial Experts and Vulnerability Fit in Your Money Journey?

Dave Ramsey, Robert Kiyosaki, Suze Orman, Jonathan & Amanda Teixeira, Crystal Paine, Jessica Turner, Holly Reid Toodle, Chelsea Brennan. What do all these names have in common? They are financial experts. They have created spaces where you and I can listen in, ask questions, learn, grow, and make better money choices. These spaces are where each of these experts are vulnerable in sharing their stories and allow us to be vulnerable in sharing our money journey and where we are. Be willing to show up and learn from different sources.

Like my friend, Trish illustrates here, it is important to listen to different experts to apply what makes sense to your family. And just as important, remember that just because we take the knowledge and adjust to our family, doesn’t mean we’re wrong, we are doing the best that we can with the information we have.

By Sharing Your Story

Recently I wrote about facing your money fears head on, acknowledging your money stories and evaluating your money decision tree. I want this to be a part of the continued conversation. In order to change our future for ourselves and our families, we have to share our stories.

Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.

Sometimes I need to be reminded.. DO NOT discount your journey and how big of a step it is to acknowledge where you are.

By Accepting Your Money Journey

Are you in debt? Were you in debt? Have you made a late payment? Do you know what a credit score is?

IT IS OK. Accept where you are and dream about where you want to go. Then let’s set up some goals and an action plan!

One intentional choice at a time, you make the world around you better.

Michael Hyatt

Remember money is an exchange of something. AND give yourself grace in your money journal.
