Episode 1 ⋅ 8th March 2021
Cat and Christine unpack the question of whether we have control of our money, or whether it controls us. You'll hear what a healthy relationship with money looks like, how our childhood can impact the forming of our money habits and tips to improve how you feel about money. Listen below.
Whether you're conscious of it or not, your relationship with money is the absolute start of your financial journey and can have a huge impact on other areas of your life. It can impact things like how stressed you are, how you go about negotiating your salary, the success of your romantic relationship, your approach to growing your money etc etc. The list goes on.
Control is so closely tied to how we interact with money, because when we feel in control we can feel good, inspired and really to crush our financial goals. When we don't, we can feel frazzled, stressed, and demotivated to make changes or improve our situation.
Fun fact: in 2017 the CFFC surveyed more than 3000 New Zealanders and found that 1/3 of women in NZ don't know which funds their KiwiSaver is invested in. Talk about a lack of financial clarity and control huh?
