What Is A Brokeaholic?

Do you work hard and earn a good living, but continue to go broke, not save, go into panic from time to time when waiting for one check to clear so that you can pay for basic things like rent?

Do you know a lot about how to reduce debt, earn more, start a business? Do you what you’re “supposed” to do, but just can’t seem to do it?

Do you sometimes get all excited and start creating budgets, tracking expenses, regularly depositing a percentage of your earnings in savings… and then stop/forget/get annoyed/have to pay for something and give up?

Did you grow up with little to no expectation that you’d make very much money?

Do you identify with the struggling artist, working class activist, under-appreciated service worker, non-employed homemaker, unpaid volunteer?

Do you suspect rich people of cheating the poor, working the system, or of generally being unfairly advantaged?

If you made a lot of money, would that put a strain between you and your friends or family?

If these things are true for you, then you’re at least in danger of getting hooked on not having money and you might already be a Brokeaholic.
