Hey everyone, I have a great new book to share with you! The 5 Money Personalities is not your average "How to Manage Your Money In So Many Steps" book. It's really not even about putting a budget together. Nope.
This book explains how we all have a unique "money personality" which affects the way we relate to our spouse. And...how we make money decisions every day without thinking about it.
The book is meant to be read together with your husband or wife, with the goal of coming together in unity over your financial life.
The journey begins with an assessment of your personal money style, and then discovering that of your mate. Just identifying those alone can help pinpoint why both parties often clash.
You'll find out if you fit best in the role of Saver, Spender, Risk Taker, Security Seeker, or the Flyer.
Do you know what financial infidelity is? The 5 Money Personalities will show you. You'll also discover what the Opposite Dynamic is. This may all sound a little mysterious, but if I reveal too much, there won't be much reason to read the book for yourself.
The bottom line is that if you commit to putting these principles into place, you will have gone a long way towards either healing a strained relationship, or strengthening a good one.
I found the book to be a refreshing read. It was helpful- and at times convicting for me personally, as I began targeting financial areas that need attention.
Now here is some good news. The publisher has graciously provided a copy of The 5 Money Personalities to give away to one lucky reader!

About The 5 Money PersonalitiesThe 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?
