Many of us think that if we have more money, that will solve our money problems. It can be a quick fix but you'll slip back to your bad spending habits because your underlying behavior and motivation did not change.

There's something else causing problems and we hesitate to dig deeper. Skills and knowledge on money management are important but they won't be of much help if you do not have a positive money mindset.

In this episode, we are going to talk about money mindset - its importance, overcoming people's resistance towards it, and how it's going to help you to create financial security, to become better with money, and to start creating a better future for you and your family.
