Episode 48: I Am My Own Worst Enemy

Say it with me: The thing standing in the way of me being a success with money is, yes, me. Capital M. Capital E. Self-sabotage can be one of the most damaging behaviors in our lives. It can hold us back with our relationships, our careers, and when it comes to our money, it can be particularly destructive. Fortunately, the Savvy Psychologist Dr. Ellen Hendriksen is on hand to help us get self-sabotage to stand down. She says giving up isn’t failure if it moves us forward — and sometimes knowing when to cut our losses is the best and most mature choice. Plus, Kelly and I tackle your questions about unused gift cards, how long you need to keep the paperwork when you sell your home and when you do — and do not — need permanent life insurance. Share us with your friends. We’ve got a big book giveaway coming up for our 50th episode and if you’ll tweet, post on Facebook or otherwise share (http://apple.co/1Sb1OCo) info of how we’ve helped you, we may just send one your way. Among them: AgeProof: Living Longer Without Running Out Of Money Or Breaking A Hip.
