Let's face it. For many of us, our finances are a taboo subject. We'll happily chat about our relationships, jobs, families, diets and exercise regimens, but when it comes to money… Well, that's personal.
Why do we feel the way we do? What if—instead of keeping our stories and questions to ourselves—we started talking more openly about money? The challenging parts, our tips and wins, and our goals when it comes to wealth, life and security? We might discover that we've got more in common with everyone else than we thought. We just might learn a little bit more from those that have already been there, done that. Did you know that people who don't talk about money tend to be more anxious about it than those who do? That those who follow their dreams are also more likely to talk openly about finance than those who have given up on a dream because of money? It's not an easy conversation, but it's one that's worth having.

Do you use money to demonstrate affection and generosity? Or is money about freedom from the everyday—a means to pursue your passions? Maybe having money makes you feel safe and ready for life's uncertainties. Or is it a symbol of achievement - that you're moving ahead?
