Today’s Lifework: You are going to create a family tree. But not just any family tree but a financial family tree. (BOOM!)
You know the saying, “the apple doesn’t fall from the tree”? We say that to mean that we are influenced by those around us and when we were children, we were especially influenced by our family members.”
You can go to The Happy Finances Community for your free pdf (check the files folder at top of the group) of “My Family Financial Tree” or you can create a financial family tree in your journal.
When filling out “My Family Financial Tree,” be sure to:
- Fill out the names of your closest family members including yourself
- Next to each person’s name, jot down 2-3 messages or sayings that you’ve heard from them. ( i.e. You only live once. I can never catch a break. Money is hard to come by.)
There will be a second part of this lifework tomorrow for you to complete but for today, I just want you to step back and look at how your financial identity was influenced by the people around you.
Take a couple minutes to share your Day 2“aha” moments with us in The Happy Finances Community.
What surprised you? What scared you? What empowered you?
That’s it for today’s lifework!
Also, leave a comment below with your “aha” moment or reach out to your accountability partner(s) for questions and insights.
Finally, hit me up and share your insights. I’m cheering you on.

The Mama Bear Principle: Mama Bears are protective of their cubs and their crew. And that’s exactly how I feel about our community. Throughout the Happy Finances Challenge, I may recommend some products and service and receive some form of compensation. However, I would NEVER suggest them unless I truly believed they were useful or helpful.
