It’s Not What You Have, It’s What You’re Worth

Sometimes we hear people brag about their new car, new home, luxurious apartment, expensive jewelry, designer clothing, or high tech gadgets. These boasters enjoy bragging about their prized possessions to communicate that they have achieved a certain social status. In the mind of the untrained financial professional, these people are “Doing It Big!”, “Flossin”, and “Shinin.”. The sad truth is that many of these people are “Smelling Good, Looking Good, and Broke!” Why? Because it’s not what you have, it’s what you’re worth.

Whether you are a business expert or you have troubling balancing your checkbook, life requires that you participate in business transactions (such as: financing a new car, leasing an apartment, buying a home, or purchasing insurance). But the sad truth is that most people lack the required education and experience to make sound business decisions. The result of the lack of business expertise leads to major confusion between assets and liabilities. In simple terms, some people think that they are financially “getting ahead” when they are actually setting themselves back.

Time To Have The Talk: The Money Talk

It’s time to have the talk. About what? The topic that most Americans are afraid to discuss. Now is the time to find the courage to release our fears and let our friends and family know if we are experiencing or will soon experience financial challenges. I call this Money Talk, an open and honest conversation with our inner circle of friends/family about our financial situation.

During the past two years, many of my clients have opened up and revealed their deepest and darkest secrets: they are on the verge of losing their home, they lost their jobs, their credit is terrible, their home values have drastically declined, they are unable to pay their monthly bills, or they have little savings. Many of my clients consider me a trusted professional, so they feel comfortable sharing their financial information with me but they are unwilling to share their financial distress with their close friends or family members. The failure to communicate these important financial concerns create financial illusions; giving many people the impression that their friends and family members are doing just fine.

Are You Substituting Money For Self-Worth?

By Rashad Phillips

Often, we attempt to conceal or deny the connection between money and romantic relationships. Part of the denial is based on a lack of understanding about the functions of money and uncertainty as to the purpose of romantic relationships. The lack of knowledge regarding both money and relationships create major issues that result in break-ups, separation, and divorce.

Money has an important function, which is referred to in economics as a measure of value. The measure of value component of money is used to determine one’s net worth. As human beings, we have the challenge of determining our own self-worth.
