A Money Life-map

We can use this simple 'map' to make markers - and notes, too, of the times in our life when our relationship with money changed.

Use it how you like, but we have suggested that things which are better go towards the top, and things which were worse, go toward the bottom.

Can you remember hpow and when you found out about money? Who did you learn form? how do you feel about money now? how old were you when you learned these things? how did it make you feel?

You can use the life-map any way that works for you - the idea is to see for yourself, through putting markers on the map, your experiences with money across your life - maybe you will see something interesting.

Here are a few questions, to get you started.

  • First earned my own money

  • Took on a serious loan - mortgage or credit card

  • Became self-employed

Here are some examples
