How many of you intentionally manage your money and finances? And, who has read books and taken courses or some variation of education to learn more strategies and different mindsets? What is missing for you?
We work and invest to have income, to buy things, to save and prepare for our present and future selves. How many actually take the time to create an intentional money plan and structure?
Is this taught anywhere in the workplace? I'm not talking about the typical "sign up for 401k and benefits" but truly going through real life scenarios of money management and planning.
If you've never taken the time to think about your money, income, savings, investments and what you would like to do with it, what's the reason? Is it lack of time? Fear of what might happen if you look under the covers? Fear ingrained in you from childhood that you were taught, like "money is hard to come by" and "money is scarce" and other lack mindset pieces like that?
If you have taken the time to go through this exercise, what have you learned that you can share with others?
