Vh1 Mob Wives: Financial Planning with Karen Gravano

I met with Karen Gravano, from Vh1′s Mob Wives, to discuss her financial goals. She brought the cameras along, and as a result a portion of our meeting can be seen in this clip.

Financial Goals & Setting Boundaries

One of Karen’s main issues is related to the fact that her daughter’s father is living rent-free in a home she owns. Having boundaries with family members and close friends is difficult for many people, especially when it comes to money. I see this type of misguided generosity on a regular basis.

Sometimes learning to say no is what’s best for your financial situation. And perhaps surprisingly, it often strengthens relationships as well. It’s that whole “give-a-man-a-fish-he-eats-for-a-day-teach-a-man-to-fish-he-eats-for-a-lifetime” kinda thing.
