How Engaging In Mindfulness Expands The Way You Do Money As A Couple with Spencer Sherman

“I think one thing that could be helpful for couples and bring a lot of connection and understanding of each other is telling your money story to your spouse.”


Imagine starting a conversation with your partner about finances without the fear of taboo or judgment. What would that look like? Join our host Ed Coambs as he takes that journey of financial intimacy with guest Spencer Sherman, founder of Abacus Wealth Partners. He enlightens us on initiating meaningful money conversations in relationships while balancing the emotional and analytical aspects of financial decisions. Spencer shares his insightful journey to understanding the emotional dynamics of money and the integration of mindfulness into his practice.

In fact, you can leverage common sense and objectivity to overcome financial challenges. They delve deeper into the complexities of unequal financial dynamics and how societal taboos have made money talks notoriously complicated.
