We often tell ourselves stories to excuse the wrong-doings that we allow to happen in our finances. These limiting beliefs that we have, or excuses we create, can end up hurting our financial situation long-term if we don’t shift our mindset. So, how can we avoid falling into these traps? In this episode, I will be sharing the most common money myths that I see and explaining what you can do if you believe any of them to be true.

Listen in as I explain why you don't have to be good at math in order to take care of your finances and why even the smallest of steps taken towards educating yourself about your finances can make a difference. You will learn why it is important to start investing from a young age, why you don’t necessarily have to pay off your debt before investing, and how you can become involved in investing with little money.

“Nobody cares more about your life than you, so it’s time to step up.” - Tracey Bissett
