Book: "Mind Over Money; Overcoming The Money Disorders That Threaten Our Financial Health" by Dr. Brad Klontz and Dr. Ted Klontz
Book Link: http://www.amazon.com/Mind-over-Money-Overcoming-Disorders/dp/B008PHVA4U
Do you overspend? Under save? Keep secrets about money from a spouse or family member? Are you anxious about dealing with your finances? If so, you are not alone. Let's face it–just about all of have complicated, if not downright dysfunctional, relationships with money.
As Drs. Brad and Ted Klontz, a father and son team of pioneers in the emerging field of financial psychology explain, our disordered relationships with money aren’t our fault. They don’t stem from a lack of knowledge or a failure of will. Instead, they are a product of subconscious beliefs and thought patterns, rooted in our childhoods that are so deeply ingrained in us, they shape the way we deal with money our entire adult lives. But we are not powerless. By looking deep into ourselves and our pasts, we can learn to recognize these negative and self-defeating patterns of thinking, and replace them with better, healthier ones.
Drawing on their decades of experience helping patients resolve their troubling issues with money, the Klontzes and describe the twelve most common “money disorders” - like financial infidelity, money avoidance, compulsive shopping, financial enabling, and more — and explain how we can learn to identify them, understand their root causes, and ultimately overcome them.
So whether you want to learn how to make better financial decision, have more open communication with your spouse or kids about the family finances, or simply be better equipped to deal with the challenges of these tough economic times, this book will help you repair your dysfunctional relationship with money and live a healthier financial life.
What do you believe to be true about money? Every person, including every entrepreneur, has a set of beliefs around money. In many ways these beliefs may be helping you, but in some unexpected ways they may be hurting you, your spouse and your employees.
This engaging discussion will be facilitated by Ed Coambs, Marriage Counselor, and Financial Planner. With special guest Heather Culp, Bankruptcy Attorney. She will share why so many entrepreneurs end up in bankruptcy and what you can do to avoid it.
As a reminder, you don't have to read the book to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!
During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions in 2015, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
