Money – it’s a topic that’s often shrouded in secrecy, stigma, and silence.
In this episode, we break the taboo and dive deep into the world of finances within relationships. We unravel the reasons behind the taboo of discussing money and the impact it has on our relationships.
When you’re single, financial autonomy reigns supreme, and we delve into the perks and pitfalls of flying solo in the financial realm. I also share a personal story of a disastrous investment in a coach, shedding light on how our money mistakes shape us, and we explore the evolution of dealing with financial blunders while in a relationship.
Communication is the heart of any strong relationship, and we emphasize how it’s the cornerstone of financial harmony. As I always say, learn how to name, de-shame, and reframe your money discussions.
