The 5 Money Personalities
Speaking the Same Love and Money Language
From the back cover:
Every couple argues about money. It doesn’t matter if you’re raking in the cash or barely getting by, if you’ve been married for forty years or dating for four months. Money touches every decision you make as a couple- from the $5 cup of coffee to the $50,000 car. And when the tow of you don’t see eye-to-eye on how much to spend or how much to save, that’s when arguments turn into ugly, toxic fights that leave both of you feeling hurt and angry. That’s why money has become the number one cause of divorce in the United States. Obviously, something needs to change.
Are you both ready to take our Money Personality Profile? Once you know your Money Personalities, you can get to the root of money arguments and start working together. You’ll discover what has an impact on your loved one’s money decisions. You’ll learn how to talk about money in a way that’s actually kind of fun. And you’ll figure out how to put an end to money secrets and lies once and for all.
That’s a big promise. But tens of thousands have adopted The Money Couple’s methods and enjoyed a while new way of living with love and money. You can be on the way to building something beautiful together today.
This book was actually pretty interesting… and it’s one of the books that didn’t bore me at all! After finishing the book I handed it over to my sister so she could use it and learn from it as well… the book however is not that complete, as you’d need to go to the author’s website to take the test, which requires you to subscribe by putting your name, email and even zip code (I am in Canada, so I had to use my random zip code). I wish the tests were available in the book, like other personality books do… so those who have no access to the internet would be able to find out their personal money profile.
Anyway, this book delivers what it promises… in the beginning/introduction, it says that this book is not about the practical side of money, but rather the emotional aspect in money relationship. It is still practical in the sense that it provides actionable steps at every chapter. And they’re easy to follow… My husband and I did the “money dump” and “money hurdle” and it lifted off the tension that used to always be there between us whenever we talk about money… but for the first time in 2 years, talking about money and our dreams became more fun! I’m really happy about reading this book and I would definitely recommend this!
