What is your emotional relationship with money?

The way we feel about money affects our spending habits, both positively and negatively.

SEATTLE — How we feel about money today is heavily dependent on our past experiences, what we were taught growing up, and a variety of other factors that affect whether we think about money negatively or positively. John Christianson, author of The Wealth Creator's Playbook and CEO of Highland Private Wealth Management, calls that relationship your Money EQ. If you have a negative Money EQ, this could impact your financial decisions in ways that hurt you in the long run. Christianson joins New Day Northwest to talk about the ways our emotions about money impact our finances and how we can change that relationship for the better.  

Christianson also produces and hosts "The Wealth Confidant Podcast" that you can listen to on Apple Podcasts. 

Take Christianson's assessment to find out more about your Money EQ.
