MyMoney Online, Personal Finance with Warren Ingram

You CAN spend on yourself AND have real wealth

Certified Financial Planner Kim Potgieter has many clients who hold the belief or fear that they don’t have real wealth and cannot spend money on themselves.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Potgieter for his weekly personal finance feature.

Potgieter spoke about David Krueger’s fascinating insights around, what he calls, our own "money stories" (our beliefs about money) and the way that these dictate the role that money plays in our lives.

She advised on changing money beliefs and fears when they hold you back from achieving the life you want to live.

She gave tips on implementing a life plan that will lead you towards a meaningful, fulfilling life.

And yes – that means you may have to start spending more on YOU!
