How to Talk about Money with Your Partner and Build a Rich Life Together with Ramit Sethi

As entrepreneurs, we’re constantly looking at our numbers – how much money did we make this month? What was our profit? Our revenue? Was that new tool/team member/course a good investment?

But when it comes to talking about the numbers with our partner, we freeze. We don’t know what to say or we don’t know how to say it… and so we avoid, we fight about the cost of tomatoes, and we get stuck in the same arguments again and again.

How do we get out of this cycle and create a life we love with our partner?

Enter financial expert Ramit Sethi. Ramit was a guest of the podcast back in April 2020 (listen to his episode >>HERE<<) and our conversation about pricing at that time remains one of the most downloaded episodes of the Jasmine Star Show to date.

In this episode, he not only gives practical money advice for entrepreneurs at all stages of their business journey – he pairs this advice with scripts for how to involve your partner and have meaningful, productive conversations about money and building a rich life together.
