Lucrative Learnings
July 2021

Ever feel like you’re turning into your parents? Are you starting to notice those uncool little habits you have always been annoyed with? While this may seem unwanted, you might have learned some lucrative ways to manage your finances. Your family, the media, and culture all play a part in developing your relationship with money. Here’s a tip: Evaluate how your family has handled their money, ways that the media is influencing you, and what your culture tells you. Maybe friends you follow on social media spend a lot of money on clothes and coffee. Your environment at home could show you that saving more is important and your culture tells you to invest. Once you have identified where these influences come from, you can make a conscious decision on how you would like to manage your own finances.

Curious about your money habits? Check out this free article from our partners at GreenPath Financial on “What Influences your Money Habits?” and start planning today!
