Episode 31: Bad with Money or Just Bad Habits?

“Money isn’t bad. Nor is it good. It’s just money. What shapes your relationship with it is a matter of what value you get out of what you use the money for. ” — Helen Ngo, CEO

There’s a lot of self shaming when we say to ourselves “I am bad with money.”

Money is a resource, so how can you feel bad about a resource? We tend to feel “bad” about money, when how we use it doesn’t yield us the result we expect.

Ever bought something and felt guilty about it later? Ever feel like you misused money or wasted it?

When we use money in a way that doesn’t get us what we want, we tend to describe ourselves as “being bad with money,” especially if it gets us into debt. The financial self-shaming feels never ending because of how we continually manage the money, not so much money in and of itself.

Maybe it’s not money you are bad with. Maybe you’re just not aware yet of how to best use money to your full advantage.

In this episode, we explore how words we use to describe our relationship with money affects our personal outlook to get ahead financially.

What we tackle in this episode:

  • What words to use to improve our relationship with money

  • How to refine your personal money management system
