Taboo. It shouldn’t be! Talking about money can net huge dividends.
In our business of financial planning, we sometimes joke people would rather talk about their intimate life than their money, and it isn’t far from the truth. We have created a culture where money is a measure of success, it is a symbol of everything deemed worthy of our existence. So, we keep it secret and don’t discuss it with people we know, our families and sometimes even between spouses.
