The 5 Money Personalities: Review & Giveaway

 *** Giveaway Now Closed ***
Congratulations to Angie!

I have a new book to tell you about, The 5 Money Personalities, by Scott & Bethany Palmer - otherwise known as The Money Couple.  As they will tell you, this is not a budgeting book or even a book on managing your money.  Instead this book focuses on determining how your money and your relationship combine - your Money Relationship.  You will be introduced to the Five Money Personalities: Saver, Spender, Risk Taker, Security Seeker, and Flyer.  Afterward, you will determine your primary and secondary Money Personalities.  Determining your exact mix was a bit tricky for myself.  David was able to read the chapter and definitely determine that he is a Saver/Risk Taker.  I had him take the on-line quiz and sure enough he came out a Saver/Risk Taker.  I could not determine my personality from the book descriptions alone.  I took the on-line quiz and it said I am a Saver/Security Seeker but that didn't seem to be the complete picture for me.  After reading the chapter, David thinks that I am definitely a Spender/Saver.  Quizzes have always been difficult because I tend to be a gray area person with extreme questions - saying never and always are difficult for me.  So I am defaulting to my husband here and going with Spender/Saver - after some thought I really do think this suits me.  After determining you and your spouse's Money Personalities you will see how they work together.  I found this whole section of the book extremely interesting.  I have to admit that David and I have little conflict over money.  I am not saying it never happens but we tend to have great communication on this topic!  And even so, I found some of the outlooks and concepts in this book eye-opening and helpful.  If you and your spouse really do not see eye-to-eye when it comes to handling and spending money, I think this could be a great resource to turn the tables around and unite you as a couple!  Keep reading for more on this book, the authors, and a sweet giveaway.

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?
