[6:46] How much of money management do you believe is linked to your mental well being?
- If you remember the first money conversation you can remember, that is probably related to your current beliefs about money
- As an example if the first conversation you hear is about someone not being able to afford something you will either become a big spender and live paycheck to paycheck or end up spending every single penny
- Try to remember the first conversation you had and learning the lesson of what you should be doing and figure out where you are.
