It’s the last month of the tax year and money is often a hot topic in March. The women at Buildalifeyou.love – a business which focuses on helping women build lives and careers they love – have created #MindfulMoneyMonth to help us all manage our money well. And I’ve got two copies of ‘Embrace Your Money Personality’ to give away to two lucky winners so read on to enter the competition below..!
Money worries topped a recent poll of “the biggest stress triggers” in the UK. Of the 2000 people surveyed, money caused more stress for them than work or relationship problems. So I think it’s important to tackle money issues head-on and Buildalifeyou.love’s new mindful approach seems to be a calm and reflective way to get your finances in order.
You may have spotted the Buildalifeyou.love’s motivational quotes and life hacks on Instagram throughout March, where they’ve been encouraging followers to join in with #MindfulMoneyMonth. One of the founders, Tracy said that they’d asked people what had been holding them back from working towards their financial goals, and that’s where it got complicated:
“In theory, if we get our budgeting and earnings right, it’s simply a case of working consistently and smartly towards our goal until we achieve it. So why doesn’t it work in practice? Some people couldn’t stop buying nice things even when they have a wardrobe full of clothes they haven’t worn. Some couldn’t stop going out even when it was out of their budget. Some people kept giving their loved ones money when they asked, even if it meant putting themselves in debt. Others found it really hard to save and some found it impossible to invest in things or themselves, even if they knew that would make them more financially secure in the long run. Hearing all these stories about people’s experiences with personal money management made us realise that it’s about more than basic money skills. It’s about unpicking our deep set beliefs and attitudes to money.”
It’s easy to believe that some people “just better with money” than others, but Embrace Your Money Personality helps readers to discover their own individual “money personality”, or “Sacred Money Archetypes”, which were created by Kendall SummerHawk. The women at Build a life you.love used this technique to improve their own finances and want to share this with others.
You can take the Sacred Money Archetypes assessment for free on the website. Once you’ve discovered your money personality there’s a digital download guide that can help you to understand your financial strengths and weaknesses, so you can really figure out what money means to you and the best way for you to approach it.
The good news is that you could win a printed copy of the complete guide in my blog giveaway! The booklet contains the assessment questionnaire, and shows you how to Embrace Your Money Personality to improve your finances and start saving for your big goals – brilliant! I’ve got two copies to give away to two lucky winners so enter via the Rafflecopter below – good luck!a Rafflecopter giveaway
