In a society where it is often easier to discuss sex than money, many of us have hidden issues about personal finances. But when fending off bill collectors, begging for salary advances, or borrowing from relatives becomes a way of life, unresolved money problems can lead to enormous stress and destroy relationships, careers, and lives. Do you recognize yourself or someone you love in any of these descriptions?
THE COMPULSIVE SPENDER Do you buy things and hide them?
THE BIG DEAL CHASER Do you refuse to watch your money because one big deal is going to make everything all right?
THE MAINTENANCE MONEY DRUNK Is the pay the only thing you like about your job?
THE POVERTY ADDICT Do you feel morally superior to people with money?
THE CASH CODEPENDENT Are you afraid to say no to your partner about money?
Through their highly effective seminars, Mark Bryan and Julia Cameron have helped many people get out of debt and free themselves from the painful cycle of acting out with money. The Money Drunk offers new perspectives on the real roots of money problems, showing how to dismantle negative family and societal programming about money and how to undo the destructive patterns that sabotage your financial success. The program teaches new, more constructive habits to anyone who has ever had a problem with money.
“Most of us are a little ‘money crazy’ from part to nearly all the time. This book points the way back to sanity.”—Carol Osborn, author of Inner Excellence: Spiritual Principles of Life-Driven Business
