Fight FOMO and Overspending as a Couple

stop fomo and overspending

For millions here in the United States, the floodgates will open and if it’s anything like years past we’ll see more than $50 billion dollars spent. Just for one weekend.

Enormous amount for sure. And around 31.8% use credit cards to pay for holiday shopping. There’s a very good chance there are couples and families who will mis stheir budget and overspend.

That can be a recipe for financial disaster.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Hilary Hendershott, founder and CEO of Hilary Hendershott Wealth Management, is here to help me out. She’s a fiduciary financial advisor who has worked with couples in helping them identify the psychological triggers with their finances and guides them towards better habits and building wealth.

Today, we’ll get into:

  • how FOMO can be a sabotage our budget
  • setting things up so you can get what you want without going broke
  • how couples can meaningfully talk about what they want and working together on a plan

Hope you enjoy!
