For a long..LONGGG time I suffered from financial anxiety. Yes it’s a real thing. I’d refused to check my account, undercharged for my services, wanted to give things away for free, and just go into panic when I knew my expenses were more than my revenues. I’m still figuring it all out but I wanted to share some resources that have helped me with this anxiety. I’ve been using a few apps to save, track my spending, and collect my money.
Square cash - peer to peer payments.They also give you a debit card number in the app that you can use to make purchases. You can request an actual debit card also. ( free) -> Try Cash App using my code and we’ll each get $5! cash.me/app/JMQXBRF
