When women come to me for financial advice, they are often shocked by what I don’t tell them to do.
If you are struggling with your finances or lacking a clear plan, the default solution is to restrict, trim, eliminate, and benchmark. There’s a long list of “musts” to follow if you want to get out of your financial hole or on the path to a secure future.
The financial advice women are typically given include:
These “musts” do indeed produce results. But are they sustainable and do they allow you to live your best life? If your gut has a negative reaction to these “musts”, then they aren’t for you.
And I know this because I’ve tried them all. Feeling like I was restricted in any way made me revolt. Sure, sometimes I’d stick to my strict spending plan, and my cash flow would improve. But after a few weeks, I’d make one excess purchase, feel like a failure, and abandon the whole thing.
It took years to discover that there was a better way. One that allowed me to bask in financial bliss while working diligently towards my money goals. And about those goals? They were the unique output of a grandiose vision for my life, not some outdated rules of thumb.
Sometimes quick is what you’re looking for. And sometimes what you’re actually seeking is a new relationship with money and a plan that you can really live with.
