Christine shares her own experience hitting financial rock bottom and how she recovered from that within less than a year. She also found her purpose through it, and explains to us how to transform our relationship to money.

Are you respecting your money? Being honest with yourself about money? Giving positive attention to your money? Any relationship requires respect, honesty and positive attention to thrive. Listen in as Christine provides practical steps and guidance for creating a financial relationship that allows you to live the life you choose, and make a greater impact in the world as you partner with your money in a healthy way.   

Key Takeaways

  1. Envision money like a person that you’re in a relationship with. What makes for a good relationship is respect, honesty and positive attention.
  2. Are you respecting your money and how can you tell? Are you respecting the physical space where you have your transactions? Do you have some place where you put all of your bills?
  3. Most people are dishonest with themselves about money. They don’t want to face things.
  4. Many people are ignoring their money. They don’t take the time to look at their finances with their spouse. Schedule a date night with money.
  5. What are your money narratives? Write down everything negative you say about money. Where did that come from? Rewrite them into the positive. “It’s normal for me…” “Of course I have….”
  6. You and money can change the world
  7. Human beings make decisions emotionally. The good news is that you can begin to control your emotions and not let them highjack your wallet.
