Many of us grew up with the understanding money, like politics, sex and religion, should rarely be discussed, especially in public. We’re discouraged from talking about it at every turn, but if you want to fix your financial situation, opening up about money is exactly what we must do. It doesn’t need to be intimidating. We don’t need to be ashamed or embarrassed of our financial situation or budgeting skills.
In fact, did you know on average we’re carrying $27,000 of consumer debt per person? We’re spending $1.77 for every dollar we make? And we’re saving less than 3% of our take home pay? See, you’re not alone.
You’re stronger than you think. You’ve got this. Inhale... now 3, 2, 1... Are you ready to become #FinanciallyFierce?
I’ll meet you in the Matrix. We’ll be vulnerable, together.
