Being clueless about money is no longer affordable, says Kate Levinson.
In her new book, Emotional Currency: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Healthy Relationship with Money, Levinson, a psychotherapist, describes our “inner money life” as the complex set of thoughts, beliefs and feelings we have about our finances.
These thoughts, beliefs and feelings influence nearly every decision we make. (Guys, keep reading: Emotional currency is not only for women. We all have an inner money life worth exploring.)
I say every decision because most of the choices we make have a financial component: what we eat, what we wear, where we live, where we work, how much we work and how we recreate. Any time we buy something or don’t our inner money life is at work.
Levinson provides an eye-opening exercise she calls “My Feelings About Money.” It takes just 10 minutes and may shine some light on your views and attitudes. Give it a try.——>click here to read the full article.
