Money and Finance – Why Is It a Taboo Subject With Your Closest Friends?

I just returned from a lovely weekend with 11 of my favorite female friends. This is the fifth consecutive year that we’ve gotten together for a cross-country skiing weekend in Michigan. With no snow this year, we spent the weekend eating and drinking together, laughing, sharing stories and connecting deeply.

By the end of the weekend, I was struck by the fact that in all of our conversations, nobody talked about money in any way, shape or form. We discussed our children, our health, our jobs (a little, not a lot!), our husbands, and pretty much everything important in our lives, but not a single conversation centered around the topic of money.

I think that’s why this video from Sally Krawchek resonated with me so strongly. Women need to start talking about money openly, just like we share other important parts of our lives. Hope you enjoy this video, and that it motivates us to think about why we avoid money conversations, and the price that we pay as a result.
