Often, when clients come to see me, they are afraid I will tell them they can’t afford to have something they really want. They fear that they won’t be able to take that vacation to Europe or perhaps they shouldn’t be buying so many clothes.
Now, as a money coach, I’m used to people projecting their hopes and fears on to me. And we navigate as best we can. One of my biggest aims is to bring people to the place where they are not only conscious about what they spend, but they are happy with their spending. Yes, this really is possible!
Like many things, it is about balancing. Yes, I want to save for my safety net. And yes, I want to go to Europe. I love the idea of paying down my credit card, and I love the Nordstrom’s half yearly sale.
