26 Questions That Will Help You Discover Your Financial Values

Today we are going to ask questions that will help determine our financial strength and how we can improve ourselves for better future. 

What is your relationship with money? Do you love to save and budget for the future, or are you all about enjoying that hard-earned money and prepared to go into debt for it? Either way, we need to get better at talking about it if we ever want to be better at managing it, and eventually having more of it. Especially when you consider that globally, women control upwards of $20 trillion in annual consumer spending. But sadly, when it comes to managing money and planning for their financial future, women aren’t as independent as you’d expect. A study found that more millennial women cede control to their husbands than women of older generations. Well, our new series, The Money Files is set to change all that by helping women become masters of their own finances so they can manage their money and their future.

Money. We all love spending it and we all want more of it, but saving it is the hard part. It’s not that we don’t want to see more money in the bank (duh) but striking a balance between saving for the future and living the life you want isn’t always an easy one to master. Too often, the pendulum swings farther into the spending camp and before you know it, you’re in the red and playing catch-up with the interest charged on your credit card debt.

Don’t worry, we get it. That’s why we asked Priya Malani, partner of Stash Wealth, to help us all get our finances in order. So, she sent us 10 important money questions to ask ourselves so we can bank that cash, pay off that debt, and live life like a millionaire (well, that’s the dream).

Now if you can answer Yes or No to the following questions, your chances of living better life of your dreams is sure. Remember your answer should be Yes, No or I don’t Know. I want you to be honest with yourself as well.
