On the Psychology of Money. Interview with Amy Leis [FSTU 047]
When money is involved all sorts of psychological triggers can come up that can potentially trip us up — many of which we’re not even aware of. But as empowered women business owners, we ought to become savvy about these concepts so we are aware when they arise and we can use them to our advantage.
Money is a complex topic and I’m excited to welcome our guest today that brings both her financial acumen and her background as a PhD in Educational Psychology to the conversation.
Today Jenn Aubert of LearnSavvy is chatting with financial advisor Amy Leis about the psychological aspects that arise when we make financial decisions both personally and professionally.
In our conversation we discuss psychological principles such as loss aversion, opportunity costs, the endowment effect and herd behavior. Let’s begin to be wiser when it comes to our money!
