Money really sucks sometimes. Let’s just put that out there.
What’s worse is all the well-meaning advice that’s supposed to make it better:
“Stick to a budget, clip coupons, and stop spending so much so you can enjoy life when you’re 70.”
That’s the prevailing wisdom about being “good” with money. Mostly, it makes you feel anxious and guilty you’re NOT doing all those things.
Anxiety and guilt suck. Therefore, money sucks. So you avoid it.
BUT. What if you didn’t?
What if instead of avoiding conversations about money and dealing with money…you totally ROCKED it?
You already know WHAT to do: Spend less than you earn, pay off debt, save for retirement. BOOM.
There’s more, though. Because being “good’ with money is not just about what you do.
It’s ALSO about how you feel.
And the real question is, can you DO those things in a way that FEELS right for you?
The answer is yes. You can.
You can feel as relaxed about money as you do in your yoga pants.
You can feel as confident about money as you do in your favorite little black dress and heels.
You can be powerful and in control of your finances, and it doesn’t have to suck.
In fact, it can be pretty freaking fantastic.
Grab on, hold tight, and let’s do this.
