Talking ADHD, Money, and Emotions with Rick Webster
Show Notes

I'm sooo excited to bring this episode to you featuring Rick Webster of Rena-Fi.

Instead of typing a 1500 work post in here, I'll just put the bullet points:

  • Aim for financial stability, before wealth
  • Income isn't the problem, it's how you manage what you have
  • Emotional dysregulation ---> panic, reactive thinking
  • A budget is just the surface, you have to go deeper to figure out what's going on
  • Why auto payments are your friend
  • Getting real with yourself + embracing personal responsibility = feeling more in control of your money
  • There is no linear or one-size-fits-all solution
  • Behavioral change takes time to learn, so does financial literacy
  • Creating mindfulness around your spending
  • Rick's thoughts on ADHDers using cash
  • The need for ADHD brains to feel rewarded
  • Considering your future-self when making decisions
  • The missing self-trust that all ADHDers seem to struggle with
  • Scarcity mindset, feeling stuck, and dwelling on past mistakes

Rick's overarching message is that money problems cannot be solved by creating a new budget or making more money.

You have to get to the emotional root of the problem to create more financial security for yourself. And Rena-fi provides accessible, affordable options to do that.
