Today we are talking all about Money Habits with money expert, Rachel Cruze.
Since 2010, Rachel has served at Ramsey Solutions, where she teaches people to avoid debt, save money, budget and how to win with money at any stage in life. She’s authored three best-selling books, including Love Your Life, Not Theirs and Smart Money Smart Kids, which she co-wrote with her father, Dave Ramsey.
I invited Rachel to join me on TOL to talk about her latest book Know Yourself, Know Your Money: Discover WHY You Handle Money the Way You Do and WHAT to Do About It that just released last week!
During our conversation we talked about
- The motivation that led her to write this book
- The role that fear plays into how we use, save and spend money
- The 4 different types of “money classrooms”
- The 7 money tendencies and how to identify them
- How & when to talk to your kids about money and finances
- Practical and tactical steps to take if you’re are feeling overwhelmed about debt or expenses
****Special bonus! At the top of the episode, I share a candid conversation with my good friend, Gail (who you might remember from episode 165: Preparing for Aging Parents). We talk about Gail’s wake-up call about finances, I talk about my own relationship with money, and why I believe in the value of having a financial roadmap like Dave Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps.
I always knew that there were similarities between people’s relation with money and their relationship with clutter, and Rachel’s book really gets you thinking about your WHY, (just like we teach here!) If you are struggling with clutter, I encourage you to read Rachel’s book to see if you can understand your unconscious motivations for how you view and use money. This could be the first step in living a less cluttered and more organized life.
