A clock radio and a dream

I love music! When I was a little girl, we did not have much money growing up, so my “prized possession” was a clock radio that I listened to for my entertainment. Because of that clock radio, and Casey Kasem, I have a particular fondness for 80s music, but I love all kinds of music now. I love when I listen to a song, and feel like it was written just for me. Feeling connected to a song like this makes me feel less lonely or part of a community. There is nothing like having our feelings validated, especially through song. As I embarked on the journey to achieving financial fitness, I thought about many of my favorite songs through a different filter. I almost made it a game to find a financial message in every song that I played.

Music Mondays

As a financial trainer/planner, I take many approaches to help my clients understand what I am trying to communicate. We all learn differently and sometimes a song can be my best teaching tool. Most of my clients are given a playlist when they get their financial plan that is tailored specifically to what that client needs to work on financially. I thought it would be fun to bring some of this inspiration to my blog, so, every Monday, I plan to post “Music Mondays” where I’ll blog about a song that illustrates an important concept that will move us toward our goal of becoming Financially Fit.
