There was a time when reaching for my checkbook was an anxiety producing act.

Once I opened it up, I became engulfed with guilt and fear and shame. “There’s not enough this month. I don’t know how I’m going to do this…”

Eventually, that pattern became unacceptable to me. Other people were able to effectively manage their money — but clearly, I wasn’t one of them!

So I did what I always do when I find myself in pain. I promised myself I was going to figure this thing out. That I was going to do whatever it took to educate myself, change my patterns and finally create healthier and wiser money habits.

I became a woman on a mission. And one of my very first teachers was a man named David Bach.

He didn’t know he was my teacher, of course. But I chose him, likely for his perfectly-written-for-me title, Smart Women Finish Rich.  

Over the years, David went on to pen 11 consecutive national bestsellers reaching millions around the world, all with a singular devoted focus: helping normal people like you and me get our money lives in order in a way that’s aligned with our most treasured values.

Today, I’m thrilled to have David on MarieTV. It’s one of those full circle moments, and a rich conversation filled with practical information for you and those you love.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why you shouldn’t start with “the numbers” if you want to get better with money
  • The biggest money mistake most of us make and how to fix in in less than 60 minutes
  • A seven-day strategy that’ll remove your money mysteries (especially if you say where the heck does it all go?!?)
  • How to ease money tensions at home: what to say for couples and families
  • Blunders that more “advanced” folks make with their money that you want to keep watch for
  • Why David decided to step away from his rewarding empire and the invaluable lessons he learned

Now, David and I would love to hear from you.

What’s the single biggest insight you’re taking away from today’s episode and, most importantly, what action will you take – right now – to strengthen your relationship with money?

Share as much detail as you can. Thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration and your story may give someone else the ‘aha’ they need to move powerfully ahead.

Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

Money is a companion that walks by our sides throughout our entire lives. It’s not something anyone should feel guilt, fear or shame about.

It’s simply a form of energy that, when properly understood and treated with respect by loving, compassionate people, can do tremendous good in this world.

P.S. Keep you eyes open for an email from me with something a little bit different next week. It’s a subscriber-only kind of thing.

With so much love,
