Money Dials: The Reason You Spend the Way You Do According to Ramit Sethi

I always say, “Show me a person’s calendar and I’ll show you their priorities.” Well, I have a newer version of that: Show me a person’s spending, and I can show you what they love. I spent years talking to people about their spending habits, and I boiled them down to 10 “Money Dials.” They’re called Money Dials because you can “tune” them up or down — just like a dial. If you were to look at someone else’s spending for 10 minutes, you would instantly know what their Money Dial was. And...
