He says lease. You say buy. He says Shoprite. You say Whole Foods. No matter how you say it, talking money is tough.

In a new book titled GET FINANCIALLY NAKED by Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar, you can learn how to:
Uncover your core financial beliefs. Discover what you and your mate really think about money, and whether those thoughts support (or are in conflict with) your collective life goals.
Discover how financially compatible you are. Learn how you and your significant other stack up on three critical metrics – financial interest, knowledge and behavior.
- Learn the five steps to financial satisfaction. You are busy, so you want to focus on the areas that will have the greatest impact on your financial bottom line – your home, your car, retirement, kids and extended family obligations.
