Help your clients dig deeper into their relationship with money

If you work with people addressing life, work and transition challenges, you know that money affects every aspect of your clients’ lives. Money Habitudes opens the door to your clients’ discovering how their relationship with money may be influencing their life far beyond their finances.

How Money Habitudes Can Help You

Make the Money Connection

Often a person’s relationship with money is indicative of their relationship with themself. Use Money Habitudes to begin a constructive dialogue about money and its link to messages related to self-worth, trust, independence, control, power, love, security and more. The activity is especially beneficial in private client work and support groups focused on self-efficacy, divorce, domestic abuse, parenting, and life transitions.

Reveal Insights about Career Choices

Money Habitudes is not about budgets and math but about understanding hidden messages that motivate and reinforce behaviors. Using Money Habitudes in your practice can help reveal your client’s relationship with money and how that may be influencing career choices or undermining success.

Speak a Common Financial Language

The statements and prompts used in Money Habitudes are non-threatening and provide countless conversation starters in a natural context, such as family of origin influences, financial fears and even money secrets. This “common money language” helps you get clients talking in meaningful, more efficient ways.

Keep Your Focus on What You Do Best

Money Habitudes helps you bring money into the conversation without discussing or needing to be knowledgeable about budgets, debt or other financial topics.
