Rick was featured today by financial columnist Jean Chatzky in her New York Daily News column. In the column, “Shame Game: vicious cycle of debt,” Chatzky linked shame and money, something new for her. She quoted Rick and Brené Brown, a member of the research faculty at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, who is an expert on shame.
Chatzky writes, “You’re not going to stop spending overnight, nor will you suddenly find it easy to open your credit card bills and pop a check in the mail. To put these habits behind you, you have to delve into your past and find out how and why your feelings of shame were formed in the first place, said Rick Kahler, co-author of Conscious Finance: Uncover Your Hidden Money Beliefs and Transform the Role of Money in Your Life.”
