I was blessed to be a guest on two different podcasts in the last couple of weeks. When I have the opportunity to do this I really take the time to think about what to talk about in hopes of helping others.
Maintaining a Long-Lasting Healthy Relationship with Money
In my humble opinion there are five main ingredients to having a healthy relationship with money:
- Value-based spending
- Savings goals
Before I go into these five main ingredients, I want to disclose my initial mindset shift. During my recovery, I changed my mind about money. I saw it as God’s money and that I was entrusted with some of it. When I looked at it that way, I realized I wanted to manage it well. I started tithing in response to this mindset shift. Additionally, this is where the conviction to pay off my debt came in. Furthermore, it drove me to want to learn to be an investor.
