You are a Nurturer

“Wealth is measured by the happiness I bring to others.”

Hey, Nurturer!

We see you over there with your generous tendencies and helper mentality. To you, money isn't just currency; it's a tool for kindness and care. You're all about supporting loved ones and causes close to your big heart. Pragmatic yet compassionate, you find creative ways to make your resources count for others. Your financial decisions are often led by empathy, making you the go-to person for friends in need. (You might receive Venmo requests for pizza out of nowhere!) While careful not to overextend, you get joy from seeing your money make a real difference, one act of kindness at a time.

Tip #1: Communicating with your Partner

Spending Synergy Tips

Nurturer, you're the heart and soul of any money conversation! When chatting with your partner, especially if they march to a different financial drum, remember to communicate the deep values and heartfelt reasons behind your spending.

Be open about the joy and satisfaction you get from your generous choices, while also being receptive to their ideas about saving, planning—and even the occasional splurge. It's about finding that sweet spot where caring meets compromise.

Tip #2: Grow in your role

Whether you fly YNAB solo or with a partner, you can find ways to make your money not only work for you but also do good for others.
