Ep 47 – When She Has The Money; Exploring the unique experiences of financially diverse couples in family enterprises

Listen in as we talk to Dr. Jamie & Evan Traeger-Muney about the variety of values and approaches when it comes to money in family enterprises and the “Three C’s” to live by to navigate the territory with love & compassion:

The First C: Courage-being courageous in discussing the taboo subject of money and wealth, particularly when the woman comes to the relationship with more money from a family enterprise.

The Second C: Curiosity-approaching conversations about our relationship, values, and beliefs about money with an open mind and curiosity as opposed to certainty about what is right.

The Third C: Communication-the importance of honest communication about money, wealth, and privilege in any relationship and the unique challenges when the woman has more.
