Stop Hiding Your Bank Balance

Stop hiding what you’re earning.


99% of people that I speak to, hide their bank balance from their kids.


They don’t want their kids to know what they’re earning and spending - like it’s a big family secret 🙄


Here’s why it’s a problem:


If money is always seen as a secret, this behaviour will be passed on to the next generation.


Secrecy breeds shame, and shame breeds poor self-esteem.


And I don’t know about you, but I’m yet to meet a high-achiever with poor self-esteem.


Regardless of what you earn, don’t make money a secret and instead talk to your kids about it.


They should know:


How much you make

What expenses you have

How you invest your money

And how you save for bigger purchases


The more they know = the more empowered they will be when they start managing their own pocket money.


What’s your opinion?


Keep it a secret or not?
