You've undoubtedly been told that when it comes to money, you have to put emotions aside, as they'll only cloud your better judgment and prevent you from gaining financial freedom.
Financial adviser Susan McCarthy disagrees.
In her new book "The Value of Money: Uncover the Hidden Wisdom of Money," McCarthy helps readers gain insight into their relationship with money and use it to further goals and potential.
"The truth is that money, like relationships or health or work, is a looking glass through which we can glimpse our inner life," she says. "Every financial decision shines a light on the way in which our emotions dictate our behavior."
