What is Your Money Story?



What Does it Mean to have a Money Story?


Your money story is influenced by your upbringing, family dynamics and early experiences with money. For example, if you grew up in a household where money was tight, you might develop a frugal mindset or a fear of financial insecurity.



Your money story is shaped by the beliefs and values you hold about money. These beliefs can be conscious or unconscious and may include ideas about wealth, success, happiness and the role that money can play in your life.


The way you handle money may be connected to your type of thinking. For example, if you tend to be more analytical and detail-oriented, you might excel at creating and sticking to a meticulous budget and optimizing investment strategies. On the other hand, if you're more spontaneous and impulsive, you might be inclined to ignore your money situation and indulge in purchases without much hesitation.
