Money Talks. You Should, Too.

Money Talks. You Should, Too.

I think we can all agree that talking about our finances is uncomfortable, especially if your finances are not in the best health.

However you do need to be able to communicate with your significant other about money, especially in serious relationships.

Turn budgeting into date night  #WMW16  @12LocalNews @sslatton

This week you can find more financial advice for women, as part of National Women's Money Week. Several topics and articles are on www.womensmoney.org. Maple Grove personal finance author Carrie Rocha is involved with the nonprofit that promotes financial education for women.
