Daily Juice 009 – “Money Date”: How to Talk About Money
Our discussion today is:”Money Talk” – So Talking about money — with a spouse, partner or parent, for example — is often harder than thinking about it. I love this quote by Grant Cardone: “Money is like a jealous lover. Ignore it and it will ignore you, or worth it will leave you for someone who makes it a priority”
Now I don’t want that to happen to me, ever? I don’t you do either. So, what’ the way out?
So you already know what a traditional date is, but I bet you’ve never heard of a Money Date. A Money Date is a time that you set aside for you to go over your Finances Money Flow system. A Money Flow System is a system where everything about your money works in sync.
Here is how Money Date works:
Meet once per week and discuss the following:
· How much money did you make?
· How much money did you save?
· Has your debt increased or decreased?
· Do you anticipate any unusual expenses?
Using this method doesn’t take a lot of time and is virtually effortless. It should take you no more than 30 minutes. I like to do this on the weekends, maybe Sunday afternoon, so that sets the stage for the next week and gives you a progress report to close out the current week.
I can’t wait to hear about your Money Date.
