3 Lies That Are Holding Back Your Wealth


When it comes to money mindset, a lot of us take in advice from well-meaning people or institutions that want to keep us small. I’m breaking down three myths that might be holding you back financially, including why your money shouldn’t be sitting in a savings account, how to tell the difference between good and bad debt, and why you shouldn’t be racing to pay off your mortgage. There are so many ways to start putting your money to work, but it all starts with your beliefs about what’s possible for you and your financial health.
