I set up text alerts on my current account (this is genius - how did I live without it?!) and cancelled a couple of direct debits for things I didn't need to pay for.
I value the things I buy now. I’ve stopped buying cheap clothes and only occasionally buy stuff. But when I do I only choose things I love.
I set out my prices etc with the clarity and confidence you coached me in. It feels like a landmark to me to get so clear about it and put it out there.
If I feel a twinge of resentment [over something relating to my work], I now recognise that it means that it that I’m undercharging or being taken advantage of. I now use this as a sign to do something different.
Understanding my financial position has given me the confidence to stand up to my partner and tell him I’m not happy. I could never have done this without feeling confident about my own financial independence. Our relationship is now so much better.
