Why You Should Listen:

This episode is a must-listen for anyone who wants to understand the power of listening and how it can help us change our money story. Dr. Klontz discusses the importance of embracing the discomforts that present themselves around money instead of fleeing or avoiding the discomfort. He shares how listening is the most important part of helping people change and how experiences, and not telling, are the most effective ways to make meaningful change. Dr. Klontz provides practical insights and tools that can help listeners understand and change their money story. He emphasizes that if we learn to listen to our own truth, the money will take care of itself. Dr. Klontz also suggests music is one of the most powerful ways to communicate with our authentic selves. When we hear the words being sung back to us, it’s like no other feeling to be heard. It’s a way people can feel heard.
