If you're like most people, money is stressful. It's hard to talk about, it's hard to think about, and it's hard to achieve financial health. Often, financial stress comes from the misalignment of our money and our values.

That's why you're here.

Money Health Weekly and associated blog is a personal finance resourece that explores personal finance through the lens of psychology. You'll find no jargon here; just plain English, personal stories, and basic drawings to help you develop a healthy relationship with money, increase your confidence, and improve your money health.

Change the way you look at personal finance, money, happiness, and life planning. You only have one life. Live intentionally.


If you like learning about the psychology of money and like what you've read here, consider joining Money Health Weekly.

You'll be sent an email each Thursday with the latest post, I don't send promotions, spam, guest posts, or any other form of nuisance email; just the latest posts about money psychology and financial health with personal stories and simple drawings.
