This means that you have to be aware of everything that is important to you and what you want to create. When you’re aware of what is important and what fits in with your values and lifestyle, you will rarely go wrong when you’re spending money.

Invest in something greater than that, something that will last forever. In my book creating experiences with loved ones is priceless.
We associate so many negative emotions like guilt, fear, and shame towards money. These emotions will not help your relationship with money. Learn how to love, respect and cherish money.

Last year I wasn’t planning on going to London, but I found myself purchasing a ticket because of a Turkish Airline promotion.
