In “What Do We Want? Money!” I’m sharing thoughts about creating a more successful financial future, ignoring the FOMO (that’s Fear Of Missing Out for those of you over the age of 40-something…), determining what our first steps should be and I share a couple of key components that have worked for me. Please don’t think I have this all figured out, I’m still a work in progress, I can and do make financial mistakes, but I try to make fewer of them and of a less significant impact as I move forward. Didn’t stop me from buying juicer though. Ugh! In fact, I shared some of these thoughts with Tracey Bissett recently on her “Young Money” podcast. I’ve included two snippets of our conversation as part of today’s message.
Why do I continue to believe this is important? Report after report shows financial anxiety at the top of the list of stressors for North Americans. It’s not hard to understand that trying to keep up to an unrealistic vision of someone else’s life can and is causing damage to our financial well being. In short, we need to take back control of our own financial behaviour.
I hope you enjoy it. As always, “thank you” for listening (questions and podcast ideas always welcome!)
