Friesen is a popular speaker on the psychology of money management, politics and personal transformation. His latest book entitled: “A Private Conversation with Money” is available on Amazon.
Here are some questions we discussed with Rich:
Q. So are you saying that one reason why a lot of us haven’t been able to build as much wealth as we’d like has its roots psychologically? In other words, money makes us crazy?
Q. You say that your training as a therapist opens the door to money behaviors that no longer serve us, yet we repeat them constantly. Please explain.
Q. Tell us about the Mind Muscles Academy and the training process that you’ve developed.
Q. What is the SET Awareness Workout?
Q. Tell us about your book, A Private Conversation with Money. What’s that about?
Q. You say that “Everyone can build new “Mind Muscles” designed to expand their personal awareness.” Please explain.
Q. You wrote a blog, “Uncover Your Creative Victim in 15 minutes.” What’s that about?
Q. You wrote another blog, “The Value of Information and Belonging.” It talks about filling our emotional need for “belonging” and our critical thinking need for surprises, reframes and challenges. Can you elaborate?
Q. After all of this, what would you say are the keys to financial freedom?
Q. What is the difference between financial success and failure?
Q. You have an online course in which you present 10 money-liberating exercises. What are they?
