Money matters to all of us
I am a spender. I have been a spender for as long as I can remember.
Experts say that there are only two kinds of people when it come stop money: spenders and savers.
I married a saver; something the experts also say happens.
Money mattered to me, and to my spouse. The problem was, we approached the subject from two different points of view.
Hers was like a nice safe walk in the park.
Mine was like bungie jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. And I liked it. Most of the time.
Money will either master you, or you will master it. The question is whether you have a plan for your income, and are focused on the important things.
I didn’t have a plan, and I wasn’t focused on what was important.
Then things started to change. Circumstances arose in my life which forced me to take a look at how I was managing my resources.
Today, things are headed in a good direction. I am still a spender. My wife is still a saver. However, I would classify myself as a rehabilitated spender. Or, maybe I am a spending saver.
In this episode I will share some of my story with you. I hope it encourages you to take charge of your finances this year. Let me know if I can help!
