Welcome to The Money Conversation

Because even the best financial advice is not enough.

At The Money Conversation, we believe that in order to attain our financial and life goals, it is important to know how we relate to money on an emotional level. We call this our financial identity.

When we become acquainted with our financial identity, we can combine what we know about ourselves with information we receive from our advisors to become true fiduciaries to ourselves.  This means we can create and follow through on financial plans with integrity and success.

Financial advice relies on models and logic. But modern neuroscience tells us that human emotion is the final arbiter of financial decision making.  The Money Conversation addresses the emotional component of financial behavior to enable more effective and successful financial and life planning.
