Our hearts can hijack our common sense when it comes to personal finances. If you’re currently in the midst of a separation or divorce, you’re at an increased risk for making emotional money mistakes. Even splitting from a long term partner is extremely stressful, especially when you’re living together and financially entangled. I’ll talk about four divorce money mistakes and give you practical tips to diffuse the emotions that threaten the health of your finances.

There’s a huge difference in trying to look rich versus being rich. The term “rich” is subjective and we can argue over exactly what that means. I really love the definition of rich that Jen Sincero gives in her book, You are a Badass at Making Money.
“RICH = Able to afford all of the things and experiences required to fully experience your most authentic life.”

Financial Confessional: “I Was a Check-Bouncing, Collector-Dodging Accountant!” Four years after I graduated from college, I hit financial rock bottom – hard.

I owed three different payday lenders money. I received regular collection calls on my credit cards and car loan. And I was on the black-list at all the local grocery stores because I’d bounced at least at least one check at each.

What’s worse – I was an accountant! First for an interior decorator, then for my father’s business – a multi-million-dollar machine repair company. Talk about feeling like a hypocrite!

As a self-employed professional or creative, it’s easy to fall into the trap taking any business opportunity that comes along. Your paycheck is 100% your responsibility, and you have to do whatever it takes to make ends meet especially in the beginning. However, when your focus is scattered it hurts your business in the long run. I know because it happened to me. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/power-focus-christine-luken
