Find Your Financial NatureTM is a powerful tool for my financial planning practice and the group financial literacy program Currency Camp. Our quick assessment allows us to know how a person is wired to trade time, energy, words and money. By understanding the tendencies of these 21 types we can help each client know how to have the kind of relationship they want with the world. We target our advice and more accurately communicate in a way that’s motivating. By knowing OUR type we can stay alert to how our own nature influences client relationships. Evolve with Your MoneyTM
