How to be money conscious

Most people are living [and spending] unconsciously and are confused why they struggle with their money. Here are the 3 best ways to become money conscious and reach your dreams. Become money conscious more easily with the free 7-Step Credit Card Debt Slasher here.

Are you money conscious?

The money consciousness principle is uniquely interesting to us because when we wrote 4, we thought we brilliantly coined this term “money conscious.” To us, it meant being clear on how much money we earn, save and spend. It meant having a little understanding of the economy, and it affects our lives.

It wasn’t until after we published 4 that we read Napoleon Hill’s book, Think & Grow Rich. In his book, Hill talks about money consciousness on a metaphysical level. The results of money consciousness on both a practical and spiritual level produce the same results. As Hill says, “only those who become money conscious ever accumulate great riches.”

Being money conscious is being fabulous

So many gay men long to look and seem fabulous to make up for being bullied and picked on when we were younger, for being neglected by our family and for feeling second-class at work, in government and in public. So, we try to make up for it by spending more than we can afford to buy things we don’t need.

Thus, we’re not truly living fabulously. This was our story.

Our book, 4: The 4 Principles of a Debt Free Life, tells our story of how we learned personally and professionally about getting out of and staying out of debt, after years of living fabulously but fabulously broke. On this four-week, Queer Money™ series, we share the highlights of each of the four principles and give you the tools in this series and by clicking here to master each principle.

Achieving money consciousness

On this Queer Money®, David tells a fun but all too familiar story about when we weren’t money conscious and spent over $500 on new clothes for one weeknight of dancing – the queens must dance, right? This is an example of what we mean by living fabulously broke. We then share our story of how we became money conscious and its effect on our personal and financial lives.
