Mind Over Money Can Change Your Life


“Do you have a money disorder? I’m convinced that all of us do to some degree and we owe it to ourselves and the people around us to identify them and remain mindful of them and thus enable ourselves to pursue a meaningful existence. Self-discovery, self-knowledge, and self-awareness are keys to financial success and any and all of life’s pursuits beyond money. For this reason, Mind over Money: Overcoming the Money Disorders That Threaten Our Financial Health can be a useful addition to your book shelf.”
-Financial Philosopher

“Mind Over Money is a lifeline for anyone who thinks of money as a way to secure happiness, love, or define their self-worth. I know because I was driven by these unhealthy behaviors that almost put my family and me in financial crisis. The process this book walks you through worked for me. I now control my money, my money no longer controls me. My hope is that after reading the book, you’ll be on your new path to financial healing too.”
-Wynonna Judd

“Brad and Ted Klontz know the power of the dollar in our lives, and they’ve long studied the emotions behind our financial decisions. Through their research and this compelling book, they can change lives.”
-Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of The Last Lecture, author of The Girls from Ames

“The father and son Klontz duo combine psychology, self-help, financial know-how and practical advice in this study of how money affects us emotionally and psychologically. The authors start with “flashpoints,” seminal incidents that build “money scripts,” the beliefs that “shape the way we think about and interact with money as adults.” Revealing exercises prompt readers to identify their personal money scripts and patterned behaviors—often provoking the discovery of money “disorders,” and a host of powerful memories and early experiences responsible for extravagance or financial irresponsibility. The process is complex but important; the authors reveal how powerfully emotions and childhood experiences influence our financial health and attitudes toward money. A companion Web site offers a “Financial Health Scale,” which provides tangible support for readers looking to get on track and begin implementing the book’s lessons.”
