“Money Maturity does include skills, such as understanding investment options and using a budget effectively, but it goes much deeper—to the feelings, the heart, and yes, the soul.  Money Maturity helps resolve the troubling emotional conflicts around money that never seem to go away.”

George Kinder
The Seven Stages of Money Maturity

“In personal financial management, the place to begin is to adopt a realistic perspective.  Money will only improve the quality of your life when it is used with clarity. Only when you learn to spend money in concert with your underlying values—the things that you most deeply care about—will it become a tool for creating a more fulfilling life.”

Karen Ramsey
Everything You Know About Money is Wrong

“Both ‘what’ and ‘how’ we spend dramatically impacts the quality of our lives, the quality of our relationships, and the legacy we leave to our children—not only in terms of dollars and cents, but also in terms of character, financial intelligence, and the ability to interact in positive ways around money matters.”
