This week I'm speaking with Kelly, whose lax money habits from her early 20s landed her in a stressful 25-year cycle of debt and uncertainty. Now, having sought help to finally improve her understanding of money and establish healthy spending and saving, she's debt-free.
This episode is a great one for anybody wrestling with feelings of failure or inadequacy around money, but it's also educational for you parents out there who are wondering how to ensure that your children don't grow up with a sense of entitlement around finances.
In the interview, Kelly takes us through her early money memories and the reasons she hated focusing on money. She talks about what those 25 years of constant debt were like, and how she finally reached out to a financial coach who helped her reform her treatment of money.
