The Talking About Money program is designed to help you talk about money. Learn how money is a high-stress topic, and how you can use that knowledge to help you speak with more compassion and empathy. Understanding how our brain processes information helps us better communicate about money.

Have Healthier Conversations About Money

Talking about money is hard. We don't like to be judged and the minute we start talking about money we make ourselves vulnerable. Sometimes we don't talk about money to avoid the inevitable fight. Learn how to have productive money conversations.

There's Something In Your Way

If you're anything like most people, you've got something in between you and where you want to go. Maybe you've identified what it is but can't get past in on your own. Perhaps you don't even know what's in your way. The Money Health program helps you get unstuck and on your way to where you want to go.

Be More Aware of Your Finances

Money mindfulness is bringing our awareness back into our financial lives. There has been a lot of work done to strip financial awareness away from us (how much did you spend the last time to went to a restaurant?). Living intentionally requires us to be aware of money's role in our lives.

Money and Life Are Closely Related

Money and life are intricately intertwined. There are few financial decisions that don't impact your life somehow, and few life decisions that don't have a monetary component. Get clear about who you are and where you want to go, using your money to support your life.

Focus On Things That Matter That You Can Control

It's easy to get distracted, especially be the news...especially by the financial news. It's important to ground yourself. If something matters, but you can't control it, you can't change it. If something is in your control, but doesn't matter, let it go. Only focus on the sweet spot.
