Money is a tricky topic. It's sometimes awkward to talk about. And, most of us were taught that we're not suppose to. We were told that it's impolite to discuss how much something costs or how much money we earn. Yet, it's always on our minds. As entrepreneurs, we want to do what we're passionate about and build an amazing, purposeful life while at the same time finding financial freedom and creating wealth for ourselves.
Creating wealth starts with understanding your own relationship with money. An unhealthy relationship with money means you may never achieve financial freedom. If it's uncomfortable for you to talk your finances or you have an unhealthy relationship with money, you've got to change the way you think, feel and act about money. Your old money stories hold you captive and prevent you from achieving wealth. But if you can shift the way you think about money, you have the opportunity to create the abundance you desire.

Here are Allen's nine most prevalent faulty assumptions about wealth. As you read them, notice how there is a grain of truth to each.
