Do you and your partner not share the same approach when it comes to money? Or do you find it difficult to go without having the nice-to-haves?  Do you live with a sense of fear or dread around money?  Do you feel you have no voice or power around money? If so, then you’ve come to the right place.

In today’s episode, I will talk about financial chaos and how you can detect it. Financial chaos, to simply put it, is when two people that are not on the same plane when it comes to financial matters. And this applies to ALL relationships! Also, we will have a “listener feedback” that ties in directly with what we will talk about today. So be sure to listen until the end and learn how you can deal with money chaos!

Tweetable Quotes:

“We’ve been trained that it’s impolite to talk about money, so it makes sense. But again, it’s a muscle. So we have to start to use that muscle. Use it with your partner, use it in work, use it with yourself.” – Jennifer Ives Grimson

“It’s not just about the money. It’s really about how it makes you feel and how your partner’s sense around money and use of money. It doesn’t show you the respect that you deserve.” – Jennifer Ives Grimson

“We have to put on our oxygen mask before we could save anybody else.” – Jennifer Ives Grimson
