Manage episode 285872868 series 179379
Debt is something many of us have gone through, but most of us just don’t want to talk about it, and that’s because we’re talking about it the wrong way.
Opening up about our financial situations can be intimidating, but it’s something we need to get comfortable doing if we want to move forward. The only thing is, so many of us are trapped in silence because we’re afraid of being judged.
How can we stop the cycle of shame for good and change the way we think about debt? Can we change the way we talk about money with our kids, so they don’t need to go through the same mistakes we’ve made?
In this episode, Founder of Inspired Budget, Allison Baggerly shares how to change our spending habits for the better.
Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
- Why we need to end the stigma around debt: So often, when people find themselves in debt, they end up keeping it to themselves because they feel ashamed, but that isn’t productive, and it doesn’t solve the problem. We have to remember that debt doesn’t make us unlovable, and with the right plan, we can get out of it.
- How our emotions play a role in our debt: For many women, shopping gives us an outlet to our emotions, so we end up spending money for short-term joy. The problem is, these moments never last long, so we have to get better at sitting with our emotions, instead of splurging the moment they arise.
- Why high-earners need to change how they think about money: When we’re bringing in a ton of money, it’s easy to spend on unnecessary luxuries, but that doesn’t mean we should. It’s important to think about what we really want/ what deserves to be splurged on and stop diverting from that path.
