TRUTH: Your Middle-Class Upbringing Will Keep You Broke As A Joke.
It's time we have the money conversation.
This message won't be for everyone. So, If you're feeling your blood boil by the thought of talking about money, keep scrolling.
Truth: your middle class upbringing will keep you broke as a joke.
The middle class mentality has always focused on:
1. Pay off debt - cuz Omg. Debt is your mortal enemy!
2. Save enough for 6 months. Rainy days come, the other shoe drops, gotta prepare for the worst!
3. Make sure you're putting away money for retirement - plan your entire career for this!
4. Make "just enough" for all of the above. Forget about the generations after you. You just teach them the same thing, right?
Yea. Even if ALL goes well, those are crappy goals. So, like I said... We need to have this conversation.
THIS may shock you - money makes your decisions. Money determines what part of town you live in, what house you buy (if you can buy one at all!), what college your kids choose, if you afford to take your fam on real vacation this year, or do we visit Grandpa. Again! Money decides whether or not you add a side of guac or nah. Ppl pay lip service to God/Faith/Trust. But let's be real. Money (or lack thereof) is making the choice.
Not saying it's right. Just saying it is. I watch people live like this EVERYDAY.
So, I plan to say in public what I've always taught in private with clients - a lot of that rests around money.
How to make it.
How to keep it.
How to stop being ashamed of wanting it.
How to have a healthy relationship with it.
How to trust yourself with more of it.
How to stop listening to people who don't have it give you advice about it.
How to heal from the awful things you've been taught about it.
How to align your purpose with it.
How to make money a tool, not a destination.
How to stop repelling it.
How to stop being afraid of spending it.
How to stop judging people who have it.
All the things. Order the mixtape.
Let's get this conversation started!!!
