6 Ways to Improve Your Relationship with Money is a new and engaging TED talk by Thasunda Duckett. The talk is part of the Way We Work, the platform's Dropbox-sponsored original video series that shares notes on leadership, innovation, work habits and the process of overcoming challenges during tough times -- something many professionals can closely relate to during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Addressing the overwhelming feelings many face when deciding to take control of their finances, Thasunda Duckett shares "how to minimize shame around money" and encourages viewers to "start having honest conversations about how to save." It is by being honest with ourselves that we can truly identify gaps surrounding negative habits tied to our relationship with money. Thasunda Duckett's six tips toward a better financial future include talking about money with those close to us, understanding what money is, identifying what matters most to us, really picturing what it is that matters, realizing that it's not what you make, it's what you keep, and lastly, to be good to ourselves when looking to create a new financial narrative.
