Brittney Castro, CFP®. CRPC®, AAMS®, Founder and CEO, Financially Wise Women
Many of us grew up with the financial psychology mindset that spending money is bad. For example, do you cringe when you spend money or feel guilty? Do you hide your spending from family members? If so, then today’s episode is for you. Kathleen interviews Brittney Castro about spending – the good and the bad – and busts the myth that all spending is bad. Listen in and you may find that this show affects your spending habits and your romantic relationships.
- Conscientious spending is an important part of an overall financial plan. Therefore, when you develop a budget, it’s important to allocate money towards areas that you value most. These areas are those that bring you happiness or joy in your everyday life. For example, one area may be self-care. Investing in restorative activities makes you better able to take care of others and achieve more life/work balance.
- Money is a tool to invest in yourself for the long term. By investing in yourself in the long term, you can gain more self-confidence and strengthen your relationships. It’s all about the journey and progress over perfection.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. There is no limit to the help you can ask for and actually asking for assistance makes your life easier and more fun! So build a team or find the resources to help you achieve your goals. As I always say, “Practice receiving!’
