E 13: Bari Tessler

“Do You Look Money
In The Eye?”


It’s said that you should never talk about Politics or Religion. Well I would also add money to that list, money is the leading cause of stress, and fights in marriages according to a CNBC article. Your upbringing, culture, life experience, social status, and even race all play a part in our individual comfort level when it comes to earning, spending, saving, giving and talking about money. So to bring a little levity and love to the topic I invited my friend and Author, Financial Therapist and Coach Bari Tessler to my podcast to talk about her new book “The Art Of Money” In this episode you will learn how to bring creativity to our relationship with money.
