Uncomfortable Conversations About Money


Money, Sex, Politics and Religion are topics we have all been taught not to talk about in polite company, and with dire consequences. While we might have become a bit too comfortable talking about politics we still have trouble talking about money. Disagreements over money are still seen as a leading cause of divorce. Who hasn’t been in a fight over money with a spouse or partner?

This needs to change! During this webinar, Carl Richards with share a few ideas about what we can do to stop fighting about money.

This discussion will include topics like:

  • why otherwise incredibly successful people often find money so emotional

  • how to avoid those fights that seems to come from no where

  • where to talk about money (not in the bedroom), and how to automate this process.
