About this Episode

→ Have you thought about what you want your life to look like?
→ Do you know how to use your money to get you there?
→ Do you put restrictions and hold a lot of guilt when it comes to the topic of money?

In today’s episode we learn that you’re allowed to spend your money on whatever you want. And in order to do this, there are key factors you have to keep in mind and implement. Listen in as Amy tells us what we should pay attention to, building better habits, what to do if you do and don’t manage the finances, if you should pay off debt or save first and so many other golden nuggets.
