Almost any topic feels safer, saner, and more secure than talking about money. Not only do conversations about money evoke complicated emotions, these discussions often reveal the need for secondary talks about future plans, critical decisions, competing priorities, unspoken needs, and core values. Many of us feel unprepared and uncomfortable going into the first talk; the possibility of even more conversations can cause us to double down on our fear and walk away.

Think of Money Talks as your personal coach for tough financial conversations. Each chapter breaks down complicated and emotional conversations into practical, concrete strategies. Some chapters even include scripts to get you started when you have no idea what to say or how to say it. Can’t you feel your stress going down and your confidence going up already? With this book at your side, when it comes to talking about money, you’ll never be left speechless again.
