Let’s talk about money, shall we?
What’s your salary? Do you have any savings? How much do you spend on restaurants? Do you have a bank loan? What’s your company’s profit? What’s your project budget?
You’re probably not the only one sitting in the restaurant’s table looking at the check and wondering “why the hell don’t I bring lunch to work more often?”
Why are people so weird about money conversations? Do you know that when someone asks you about your budget for a project, probably all they want is to give you a better proposal? Do you know that when you tell a job candidate how much money do you have to offer, you’re probably saving time for everyone? And do you know that when you tell someone about your debts and difficulties, you’ll probably receive that great advice that makes the difference?
Please don’t assume that money conversations are just tricky questions for the curious ones that don’t know what to do for their lives.
Just imagine your life when all money issues are an open topic to discuss with the people that surround you. Great, isn’t it? Because when you talk about it, you don’t loose it. In most cases, you achieve so much more.
And you know what? You’re probably not the only one sitting in the restaurant’s table looking at the check and wondering “why the hell don’t I bring lunch to work more often?”.
Give it a try. You will not loose any money talking about it.
