Attitudes Towards Money – a Seven-Day Challenge

During the month of April, we are committed to exploring our communities’ attitudes towards money.  We know these attitudes can vary greatly depending on a woman’s individual experiences, values, and beliefs. A core belief we have is “what we focus on we get more of.”  In some places this is considered a law of nature, others find it in religious writings, it shows up in many ways.  Since we are in the business of providing education and support for women moving through divorce and or rediscovering who they are, we thought it would be important to focus on the subject of money. Money/wealth/assets are often key considerations in structuring divorce settlements etcetera, so knowing the attitudes towards money one brings to the situation/experience could be revealing as well as very helpful.  The impact of these attitudes could be long-standing!

To support our community in becoming more aware of our attitudes towards money, we are launching a Seven-Day Challenge you can be a part of!  Here are the details:

  1. Register Here – It’s Free
  2. In your welcome letter you will receive the link to our private Facebook page where you are invited to share your thoughts, observations, and questions.
  3. For each of the seven days you will receive an email from me with a collection of attitude related information, actions and recommendations.

The goals of the challenge include raising your awareness of your own attitudes towards money/wealth/abundance and providing ideas as you how you might refine your choices on this important subject.

To “jumpstart” your thinking, here are some ideas of attitudes towards money that you might consider.  Do any of these speak to you?

  1. Financial independence: Women place a high value on being financially independent and having control over their own finances. They prioritize saving and investing for their own future security.
  2. Comfort with risk-taking: Some women are more comfortable taking risks with their money than they were when they were younger, as they have gained more financial knowledge and experience over time.
  3. Prioritizing family and community: Women view money as a tool to support their families and contribute to their communities. They prioritize spending money on experiences and activities with loved ones over material possessions.
  4. Resentment towards gender-based financial inequalities: Women are more aware of the gender-based financial inequalities that exist in society, and may be frustrated with the gender pay gap, unequal access to promotions and career opportunities, and other barriers to financial success.
  5. Fear of financial insecurity: Women have concerns about their financial future, especially if they have experienced financial setbacks in the past. They prioritize financial stability and security over other financial goals.
  6. Pragmatism: Women have a more practical and pragmatic approach to money, focusing on budgeting, saving, and avoiding unnecessary expenses.
  7. Generosity: Some women view money as a way to give back to their communities and support causes they care about. They prioritize charitable giving and volunteering over accumulating wealth.
  8. Avoiding debt: Women are more wary of debt than younger generations, having seen the negative effects of high levels of debt on their own financial stability and that of their loved ones.
  9. Building wealth for future generations: Some women prioritize building wealth not only for themselves but also for future generations, such as their children and grandchildren.
  10. Embracing financial freedom: Women view financial freedom as a way to live life on their own terms, whether that means retiring early, pursuing their passions, or traveling more frequently.

Overall, attitudes towards money can be complex and multifaceted, and may change over time as a person’s circumstances and priorities shift.  April is a month to examine your financial attitudes and Rediscovering U is here to support you on this exploration!  Join us for this Seven-Day Challenge  and let’s see what we learn.  Click Here To Join
