The 5 Money Personalities Review & Giveaway

Do you know your Money Personality?  I did not before reading, The 5 Money Personalities: Speaking the Same Love and Money Languages, by The Money Couple, Scott and Bethany Palmer.

I typically do not read these types of books, but money is very important to me (and everyone else too, right?) so I thought I would give it a try.  I've always told everyone that the only issues that Troy & I would have with each other, would be based on money.  Not because either of us is frivolous or too cheap, but because both of us are very anal about money and how it is used (or not used!).
I went into this book, thinking "this really won't pertain to us, we have pretty good plans set up", well yep, I'm like 98% of everyone else and had no clue what a Money Personality even was! It's not your retirement, college, or savings plan, it's how you look at/spend/save money, as well as your partner and how you comunicate with each other, based on your personality!
This is a must read for every couple, or everyone in general really.  It tells you so much about yourself, and your partner.  It's a very easy read, and down to earth.  Not so factual that you can only read a page and have to put it down like other books of this nature.  It puts everything out there in real life perspective, and makes everything relatable.  I even caught myself comparing myself to some of the people, and laughing throughout!

About The 5 Money Personalities
The hidden key to a healthy relationship is not just managing money but understanding how the other approaches money.
Every couple argues about money. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for 40 years or dating for 4 months, money touches every decision you make as a couple—from the $5 cup of coffee to the $50,000 car. And when the two 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 persons feeling hurt and angry. It’s why money has become the #1 cause of divorce in the U.S. Obviously, something needs to change. The reason this crisis has not been addressed is because it has never been identified, defined, or given a name. Scott and Bethany Palmer, aka “The Money Couple,” have identified and defined this problem and offer concrete solutions to fix it.
Once you know your Money Personality, you can get to the root of money arguments and start really working together. You’ll discover what has an impact on your loved one’s money decisions, and you’ll learn how to talk about money in a way that’s actually fun! You’ll figure out how to put an end to money secrets and lies once and for all.
It’s not just about money management, and it’s definitely not just about overcoming debt. It is a whole new way of living that will change everything in your relationship. Tens of thousands have already been transformed. Are you ready?

The Money Couple, Scott & Bethany Palmer, have their own website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and You Tube account.  So there is no excuse not to follow them! ; )
