2. Begin by talking about the FUN stuff.
“Having the money talk with a partner can be really daunting and scary, which is one of the many reasons we often put it off. I recommend starting with the fun stuff. The whole point of having money is to experience and have what we want. It’s a tool really. So start with what each of you wants. What are your goals in the short and long term? How do you see your life looking? This conversation is really fun and also serves as the inspiration to get your finances in order because you are doing it for something that’s really worth it! Some of your goals might be the same and some might look different, which brings us to your next question!” – Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, Money Coach and creator of the 30 Day Money Cleanse
