How to Have a Legendary Love Affair…with Money

In the spirit of Valentine’s day, I have a suggestion. There’s no better time to start having a legendary love affair with your money.

Think of it this way…

Money is like the perfect romantic partner. All it wants to do is serve you, support you and protect you.

All money requires in return is for you to respect and appreciate it by taking good care of it.

In other words, money needs your attention. It needs your understanding. And it needs to feel valued.

Without those, neither a mate nor money will stick around for the long haul.

And as in all relationships, there are good times and bad times.

Bad times are not the time to turn your back, throw in the towel or ignore your finances. At least not if you want to grow old together.

How do you survive the rough patches? Seek professional advice. Ask a lot of questions. Ensure you are positioned to grow and flourish when the tide turns.

It all boils down to this. When money feels your love, you both will live happily ever after.

What are you doing to make sure your money feels your love? Leave me a comment below and let me know.

    Hi Barbara – I just read “Overcoming Underearning” and subscribed to your newsletter. Thank you so much for your work in the world! I feel so empowered reading your advice, and I love that you emphasize both the Inner & Outer Work.

    To answer your question, this week, I scheduled a financial consultation with my favorite money pro – my dad! He’s been an actuary for several decades, so I figure he knows a thing or 300 about money. 😉 Thanks for your encouragement – I’m so excited to look at my next steps. Cheers!

      I LOVE that your father is your ‘favorite money pro!’ That’s so special. And I’m thrilled that you liked my book and subscribed to my newsletter! Everything you wrote made me so happy!!!

    To make sure my money feels my love (and appreciation), 1) I’ve started manually tracking monies flowing in and out and 2) cite practicing the 4 rules from Overcoming Underearning as one of my goals: Save More-Spend Less-Invest Wisely-Give Generously

      Christine, you are doing all the right things so show money how much you love and respect it. Great job! Thanks for letting me know!

    Such a great time to remind us to treat our finances with the same love and respect that we treat those we love. I find that when Im being present, conscious, loving in my relationship to money it feels very different than when Im ignoring, avoiding or neglecting.
    Thank you for always being on point!!

      I think when we start living a more conscious, present life we start becoming more conscious about money. We stop ignoring, avoiding or neglecting it.

    Amen to that Lourdes! It DOES feel so different. Attitude is everything. So glad you shared this with me!
