Almost any topic feels safer, saner, and more secure than talking about money. Who wants to discuss salary increases, investing, retirement, deciding whether your “home again” college grad should pay rent, or asking for tzedakah (again)? Discussing money can evoke complicated emotions, and these discussions often open up delayed decisions, competing priorities, unspoken needs, and core values. No wonder talking about money feels so tough! Think of Money Talks as your personal coach for tough financial conversations. This book includes sections devoted to having conversations with family members, from kids to aging parents, discussing money with your boss or direct report, and a special chapter full of confidence-boosting advice for women. Each chapter breaks down complicated and emotional conversations into practical, concrete strategies, including scripts to get you started when you have no idea what to say or how to say it. With this book at your side, when it comes to talking about money, you’ll never be left speechless again.
