“What Is Enough?” – with Dr. Kate Levinson

Greetings!  On the 10th and 20th of each month you will receive a short email from me. Some will link to podcasts. Others to video interviews. All will explore the intersection of money, meaning & life. Got a topic, you’d like me to discuss?  Send me an email (Manisha<at>MoneyZen.com) and tell me about it. Warmly, Manisha

PS: In early May I’ll be running a free (& shockingly effective!) 5-day “financial cleanse”… CLICK HERE if you want to be invited to the party.

I don’t want to end up poor, old, and alone.

This fear is one I hear frequently in my financial work with women. In our modern society where we can easily become isolated from family, friends, and heck, even ourselves, it is also an understandable one.

At the core of this fear is the question of “Will I have Enough?”

That’s the subject of today’s podcast with Dr. Kate Levinson, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a PhD in Clinical Psychology. Kate works with clients, couples and groups with a wide range of life and financial issues, in her private practice in San Rafael and Point Reyes Station, CA. Kate is also the author of Emotional Currency: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Healthy Relationship with Money.

In this episode you will learn:

• Why “Enough” is such a difficult concept to get our heads around
• What can we do individually to help clarify our own definitions of “Enough”
• How we form our financial identities
• How couples that have different definitions of “Enough” can create a harmonious financial environment in which to live and blossom together
• Best practices that listeners can use to guide their children to form authentic definitions of “Enough”

“Enough… is a personal accounting of both how much we have (the actual dollars and cents) and all the things that make up a rich life for us… I think about money supporting our living as fully as we can given whatever we have… it’s a really elusive topic that many of us don’t even look at because it’s so hard to get a handle on.”
– Dr. Kate Levinson

 

About Manisha’s Money Zen Blog

This blog chronicles my quest to identify simple, joyful methods that we can all use to feel calmer and more balanced in our relationship to our money.

Despite the abundance of personal finance books, magazines, radio programs and TV shows that have exploded into our lives over the past two decades, most of us struggle to find financial sanity, security and serenity. Rather than help us eliminate money pain, all this information has left us feeling overwhelmed and confused. We need fresh wisdom to break out of the cycle of despair and create lives of abundance.

Here’s hoping these short pieces will help you craft a uniquely rich and rewarding life.

To Your MoneyZen,
