The Layers of Talking About Money With Friends With Financial Coach Sarah Roller

My friends and I talk about money all the time. It’s a great way to crowdsource information from people in the same season of life. I also think it helps us be more open with one another. But money can be a taboo topic and difficult to navigate with friends. To help us through these sometimes tricky conversations, we have Sarah Roller, a financial coach who helps clients create personalized money management plans. In this episode, we cover the different levels in which you can talk about money. When is it valuable to talk numbers, and what are easy gateways into these conversations? Remember: the way you or I manage money isn’t right or wrong. It can be different but right for each of us in the current moment. How can we approach these conversations with respect and curiosity?
