Welcome to Episode 55 of Building My Legacy.


In this podcast, Bob Wheeler – a certified public accountant, author and stand-up comedian – talks about how you can have a better emotional relationship with your money. Bob believes that most people don’t realize how their unconscious money beliefs influence their money-related decisions. Today, with the financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s not surprising that so many people are fearful and anxious about their finances. In fact, Bob estimates that 85 percent of us will need “financial therapy” to get through the pandemic and its aftermath. His advice also ties in with building your legacy as you determine what’s important to you, how money plays a part in that and why it’s important to lay the groundwork now for the future.

So if you want to know:

  • How what you learned about money growing up can influence your decisions now
  • Why you can be a victim of your own financial sabotage
  • How to start the important money conversation – with your spouse or partner, children or parents – without creating a conflict
