Me and my husband are talking about what’s going on to our finances, and we discuss the assets we have such as stocks, mutual funds, trust funds, house and lot, car, and even insurances. You should also discuss liabilities such as credit card bills and other debts obligations, but beware on not to focus your discussion on liabilities to apply the law of attraction.
