Do you like to Save or Spend $?

Posted Thursday, April 30th, 2009. Filed Under Voices of youth

I was out with a friend the other day and we started to talk about money. We have no problem for this has been her family’s line of business for decades – her father, sister, husband and brother are all in the financial field.
We began to talk about her two boys – one 8 year old and the other 14 year old. The younger one likes to save all his money. He does not like to go into his bank account. The older one likes to spend.
It is my belief that we need a balance. Money is a tool and a form of exchange; it is how we pay for things. It is meant to flow.
I am putting together a program that looks at your relationship and feeling towards money for this is the starting place. It is likely that you have taken on your parents’ or an adults’ opinion of money. In order to create a healthy relationship with money it may mean breaking a cycle or belief system. Then we can move onto the basics of money, terms, budgeting, etc.
It’s time to take responsibility about your financial future.
Take a look at the new blog: Financial Empowerment.
All my best,
