Financial Topics & Tips

Is your relationship with money on the rocks?

A relationship is defined as the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected. A relationship does not necessarily need to be between two people; it can also be between a woman and her money. 

Your money needs attention, respect, and understanding; all components are needed in a compatible relationship.

If you are struggling with or misunderstanding your finances, there are a couple steps you can take to acquire the relationship you WANT.

1. First talk to a professional; make an appointment with a financial advisor.

2. Next, educate yourself about money. Read something about finances every day, that way you UNDERSTAND the other half of your relationship. You can also ask your money savvy colleagues for advice.

3. Finally, be careful of rumors and scare tactics; those facts are generally skewed. Once you have defined and developed a healthy relationship with your money, you are on the road to success!
