How do our beliefs about money affect how we handle and relate to it as adults?
In this episode, I (alongside former co-host Garrett Philbin) explore how our experiences with money growing up influence how we manage it as adults. We talk about what money scripts are, why they are so important, and how to become more aware of our unconscious patterns so we can be more intentional and in control of our money.
Sarah and Garrett dive into what they experienced growing up, and how those things had both a positive and negative impact on their personal finances. They also explore how willpower isn’t the answer to your money woes, how to create lasting changes, and where to start looking to uncover your unconscious money beliefs.
