Throughout my life, my parents always talked about money. How much this cost, why that was so expensive, how to save money here and there. So I guess I've grown accustomed to hearing money in conversations.
Now that I'm all grown up and living away from my family, I'm finding that I can't have the same conversations about money with the people around me.
Sure I can talk to my wife about our spending habits and long term goals. But when it comes to investment and wealth building strategies, I'm on my own.
That's probably why I like blogging about money so much. I guess to express the money related thoughts running through my head most of the day. Also because I can't talk about this stuff to my friends without them being extremely uncomfortable.
Unfortunately, around these parts, there are no investment clubs or anything similar. The pf blog world and the readers are my investment club.
So why is talking about sex, politics, religion, crime, gossip so easy, but talking about money so difficult to some people?
