I’m sure you already by now that navigating conversations is a two-way street, but most of us (myself included) tend to want to convince others of what we want, you know our side of things. Maybe we think we’re right, or we’re so emotionally invested in our perspective that we forget we can’t make people do what we want.
This bonus episode will cover navigating tricky conversations about money with those around you. I’m going to be looking back on two episodes from season 6 to talk about a simple framework you can use to navigate tricky conversations.
