In Episode #30 of Mindset Mastery, “Motivate Your Money: Using Conversations and Conscious Decision Making to Realize Success,” host Marie Swift, CEO of Impact Communications, speaks with book author and financial educator Mac Gardner, CFP. In addition to his book for adults, Motivate Your Money, Mac has created a book, coloring and worksheets, and a fun game for kids ages 7+ called 'The Four Money Bears: Berryville'. In this episode of Mindset Mastery, he talks about the five steps to financial success, how to motivate kids and others in our lives when it comes to money, and creating a good mindset as it relates to finances and life.
In a nutshell: The 3-Rs can help us master our money mindset. First we must realize what money is, then we must recognize what money does, and finally we must rationalize how to use money in our lives. Having conversations with our kids and grandkids – and others in our lives who might need a little extra inspiration when it comes to money management and financial literacy – is one way to start the process of becoming a better saver, investor, spender, and giver. The motivational messages and stories we tell ourselves are key. After all, says Mac, at the end of the day, we are all just a collection of stories – so might as well make them good ones!
