The prevailing attitude among many in the financial world seems to be “Money only works if you take it seriously.” But treating money as only slightly less fun than a colonoscopy means avoiding the important work of taking care of your finances. Emily Guy Birken brings some much-needed humor and light-heartedness to the topic of money management.

We discuss:

1. How to make money much less stressful, which will ALSO lead to better financial outcomes.

2. How to figure out your “why,” which makes financial decisions easier.

3. How gamification can help even the most reluctant budgeter.
