There are many ways to have a not-so-great relationship with the fuel that helps you reach your goals. You can spend too much, never spend anything…and much more. What IS a healthy relationship, and what does it look like? There are a lot of warning signs, but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy problem to fix. On today’s show, our contributors, Jen Smith from the FrugalFriendsPodcast.com, Roger Whitney (the Retirement Answer Man) from RogerWhitney.com, and Paula Pant from AffordAnything.com, will tackle their relationships with money (both the good and the bad).
Plus, during our Friday FinTech segment, we’re excited to talk to Aditi Shekar from Zeta. Mastering your relationship with money is hard enough on your own, it only gets more intense when you add someone else to the picture. Zeta helps couples (whether married, roommates, living together, or living apart) master their money through a mix of technology and good old-fashioned advice.
