In this first ever exclusive online course, they teach couples how to manage their money together and turn one of the greatest causes of marital misunderstanding into something that draws them closer.
One of the biggest causes of disagreements about money is that our different families taught us to value money differently. This module will help you assess what values you learnt about money from your families of origin and help you agree on what common values you want to have moving forward.
HOARDING VERSUS SPENDING
The second biggest cause of money disagreements is couples failing to see how their different temperaments cause them to approach money differently. This module will show you how your temperament causes you to be a loner, hoarder, spender, avoider etc. Once you understand these money traps, you can work together to ensure your money becomes a source of freedom, not slavery!
HOW TO HAVE A HEALTHY MONEY CONVERSATION
We all know that it’s important for couples to talk about money. But what most couples struggle with is how to talk about money. In this module, we help you develop communication skills that will help you have great conversations not just about money but about everything else in your marriage.
UNDERSTANDING THE WHY OF MONEY
Most couples want to learn the ‘how’ of money. They think that if they just could just get more money, then they would solve all their problems. The biggest problem however is not ‘how’ but ‘why.’ If you understand the why of money, money won’t strain your marriage but will actually bring you closer together.
