Financial Wellbeing

I’ve said before that money is not an inert force. It has incredible power to inspire the best and worst in people. It can be used to build up or to tear down, for good purposes or evil. It has the power to affect how we feel, and our financial wealth, or the lack thereof, can lead to great anxiety.

Today I chat to my good buddy Chris Budd, who is a financial planner of many years’ experience. He’s also a qualified life and business coach and is well placed to get into the nitty gritty of how money works and how we interact with it. I’ll let him do the talking.

There is so much to be gained from adopting the principles Chris has talked about, and digs deeper into in the book. Having a healthy relationship with money has so many knock-ons to the rest of our lives, that financial wellbeing must surely be a priority for all of us.
