It’s no secret that the messages we receive during childhood affect us long into our adult lives – and nowhere is that more obvious than our relationship with money. In this episode of the Weddings for Real podcast with Megan Gillikin, I’m breaking down the four money personalities, how to identify yours, and how each of the money personalities affects your business and personal life.

Some of us were taught that money “didn’t grow on trees”, that it was unpredictable, or impolite to talk about. All of these messages shape our financial habits and behavior. And I have to say, as someone with both a finance and psychology degree, this is one of my favorite subjects! 

The first step in discovering your money personality is to uncover the invisible money scripts running your life. From there, we’ll talk about how to reframe your old beliefs and build new habits to create a healthier relationship with money. Ready to get started?
