Yeah, your financial life is impacting your work life

Written by

Our personal financial lives and what we do at work are intricately connected. The obvious connection being you. If you're bad with money at home, guess what? You're going to bad with money at work.

I hear this misconception often: If I work harder at work, my finances will get better. No. That's not how it works. Flip your thought around and then you'll have it. When we work harder on our personal finances, we become better employees.

While thinking if we work harder at work our personal finances will improve is motivating, the opposite isn't always true. But think of it this way, if we improve our financial lives at home, we might like our jobs better. Or, if you've been looking for an excuse to stop working or switch jobs, fixing your financial life can give you the space to do just that.

Our responsibility is not only to our own financial lives, but also to the finances we manage at work. Start at home, start now.
