Love & Money
There’s a commonly-held myth that we – as a society – don’t talk about money. I disagree.
We talk about money ALL the time.
But, I don’t believe we have the right conversations about money. In part, because the “real” conversations – the ones that…
- address the challenges that surface
- lead to breakthroughs for better communication, and
- foster a deeper connection and intimacy
…are often awkward to initiate. And then on top of this, you have to actually tackle the details of managing and merging your finances whilst integrating your different approaches to money.
I’m Jacquette M. Timmons, the author of “Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate.” I spend A LOT of time addressing the issues and opportunities that are inherent when it comes to love and money.
I put together this collage of media appearances and media mentions that I hope will help you get (even) better at navigating and negotiating the terrain we call: love and money!
