Are you and your partner doing it?

Talking money of course!

 

A big reason why many couples argue about money involves differing values and conflicting goals which leads into a battle of; “I’m right … your wrong!”

 

Here’s why this happens: most couples do not have “Money Talks”. Sure they talk about money in varying degrees – but they don’t get into the ‘nitty gritty’ of their numbers and how the other person feels.

Let’s face it, when cashflow is good, money arguments usually are few – if any.

But when cashflow changes (usually due to less money coming in or expenses going up) […]

Are You Stressed About Money?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that you’ve been stressed about money … at least once.
Bottom line – money gives us better choices. Money impacts almost everything in our lives from the food we buy, to the car we drive, the house we live in, vacations, clothes… But what we don’t like to admit (or acknowledge) is how much money (and especially debt) can actually affect our health.
Not sleeping due to worrying about money is a common thread with clients that come to me for advice and mentoring. It’s been […]

Do you want an investment with guarantees to protect your money from market downturns?

It’s that time of year again… do I invest in an RRSP? If so – what type of funds should I invest in.

Well if you are over 55 – according to a RBC survey , 87% of Canadians are looking for investments that grow & guarantee principal and yet 60% not familiar with Segregated Funds that are available from insurance companies.

Segregated funds offer the growth potential of a mutual fund with the comfort of an insurance contract to guarantee the principal at maturity or death, and yet only 17% of respondents in […]

Better with Age?

Better with age, yes, just like a fine wine! But all those years ago, (if you are over 50) when you were watching Happy Days, did you imagine you’d be stressing about retirement? We grew up on Barbie and Ken, the Beatles and wearing bell bottoms – and now some of us are grandparents! Is it a transition you’re ready for?

 

Baby boomers (those of us born 1946-1964) have been the most marketed to generation in history. After the WWII there was a huge growth and boom in electronics, gadgets, and an exciting appeal […]

8 Ways To Have a Positive Money Mindset

When it comes to basic money management most of us know what we are ‘supposed’ to do, you know the basics; spend less than you earn – save for an emergency – and invest for your future.

 

However, establishing ‘good’ habits around money is easier said than done, for a whole lot of reasons!

 

Managing your money and other important things in your life (like an exercise or eating healthy program) takes discipline. And guess what, discipline isn’t a natural state for everyday or everyone. Oh, and let’s add the guilt and shame that you carry […]

I Have a Money Personality?

Did you know that research shows that opposites tend to attract to each other in relationships?

The crazy thing is that when it comes to money and certain spending habits; savers, who commonly spend less than they would like to spend, and spenders who generally spend more than they would rather spend, tend to marry each other, in fact that’s true for me!

 

We are more likely to be attracted to partners who possess characteristics different to those we don’t really like in ourselves. You’d think that they would complement each other and you’d […]

A Lesson From an Italian Lover of Life

“Attitude is everything, so pick a good one!”

“Is your glass half full or half empty?”

“A bad attitude is like a flat tire, if you don’t change it you’ll never go anywhere”

“Change I can’t into I can and pretty soon you will say… I did!”

 

We have all seen these quotes hundreds of times, but do we always heed this advice?

 

Our minds are so powerful to help us control our feelings and our actions, which inevitably becomes our results. It’s a good thing, well that is if you are happy with the way your life is.

 

Top 3 Limiting Money Beliefs & How to Ditch em!

When it comes to attracting either more money or having more success, I’ve found what is really stopping us from living our dreams is limiting beliefs. Unknowingly (in most cases) we allow our fears and doubts to sabotage our success. And one thing I know for sure is that our beliefs are blueprints for our reality.

In simple terms… “Your attitude towards money is enthusiastically creating your financial reality.”   tweet-this-button

This mindset includes all your beliefs, values and experiences you’ve had so far… the […]

 Quit Hiding From Money

My guess is you don’t want to hide from money you want it to flow and attract it…right? Well the reality is that in order to do that, you have to be willing to open your eyes and know in detail where you stand financially.

We all have to take responsibility; for not only our present behaviours, but past ones too. It’s important that we understand how we have created our current financial reality and why. This is where the proverbial ‘rubber meets the road’ because when we unveil the truths and dig through our money beliefs, the truth is revealed. […]

Cover Your A$$!

Summer is here! With that brings lots of fun outdoor activities; biking, water skiing, tubing, hiking and camping to name a few. Unfortunately, accidents can happen too. (I’ve seen some wicked tubing accidents and water skiing wipe-outs!)

Some accidents or sickness may only result in a few days off work… but others could result in weeks. A more serious incident may leave you unable to work for months or even years, causing you to have severe financial hardship.

While you are disabled you probably will have additional medical expenses; hospital care, home care, physiotherapy or chiropractic/massage services; all this coming at a […]
