Review & Giveaway: Get Financially Naked by Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar



One of the trickiest conversation starters usually involve money. While it's tough to talk about, it's also a vital part of a relationship. I know, from experience, that a lot of problems arise when two people have totally different spending habits. It's important to be upfront about how you are with money and how you expect your significant other to be when it comes to cash.

I think that this book would be a perfect engagement gift. Starting the conversation is the hardest part and by coming to a mutual agreement beforehand, you might just save yourself a lot of frustration.

Thank you for the giveaway! I would love this, married for 3 years but we still have troubles with our personal differences in finance which is causing some stress.
I'd love to read this then send it along to my friend who is moving in with his girlfriend in two weeks, I know they haven't had any of these hard conversations yet!
