In this episode, Financial Dignity® Coach, Christine Luken, welcomes her fellow friend, financial coach, and the author of “Dear Fellow Spender: Enjoy Using Your Money to Get Out of Debt, Build Savings, and Create a Life You Love”, Emily Burnett. Together, they talk about the emotional side of personal finance, emphasizing the importance of budgeting, not as a restriction, but as a way to plan for joyful and fulfilling spending.

Emily talks about: 

  • Her journey as a “former money mess” and what her turning point was

  • How to regain a sense of control over your money by remembering “money doesn’t spend itself”
