She Didn't Fully Understand Her Own Relationship With Money
Alexandra Wilson, CFP, financial advisor, financial coach and student loan expert at SmartPath in Atlanta, regrets not always understanding how her beliefs about money affected her financial life.
“My biggest money regret is not realizing my money script sooner in life,” she said. “Knowing your relationship with money is pivotal for getting past bad spending habits such as buying things you cannot afford. I regret the ignorance I had in college because it caused financial struggles for many years, but now that I know, I am able to control my spending and practice mindfulness when shopping — something I wish I did much sooner!”
