JW’s Financial Coaching Podcast Lesson #64-The Five Bad Financial Habits that are the toughest to break


Highlights of today’s show:

  • The five toughest financial habits to break
  • My observations from working with clients over the years
  • How to break those bad habits
  • Your list of bad financial habits
  • How you can contribute to the completion of my new book

Websters defines a habit as a usual way of behaving or something that a person does often in a regular and repeated way. As a financial coach I’ve seen how good financial habits can help you reach your goals and I’ve also seen how bad financial habits can prevent you from reaching those same goals. Today I’m going to discuss the five bad financial habits that are the toughest to break.

These five habits are the toughest to break based on my experience in coaching with clients over the years. They are as follows:

5. Getting organized

4. Not having an Emergency Fund

3. Spend Now; Pay Later

2. Not working together with your spouse

  1. Pay Day Loans

We discuss each bad habit and cover a little bit how you can get away from each one. Unfortunately bad habits aren’t easy to break, but you can break them over time.

Also I have created a survey to help with the creation of my new book on buying and selling a home. As many of you know my wife and I went through the process this past summer and it definitely is a life event. But the experience was a lot better then my first experience in real estate. Because I want your home buying experience to be a memorable one I’m writing a book detailing the real cost of buying a home by sharing our experience in addition to tips I’ve learned when coaching clients.

The survey is 9 questions long, totally anonymous, and is not a commitment on your part to buy the book when it is released. Even if you aren’t planning on buying a home any time soon, please take the time to fill out the survey as your input is still valuable to us.
