S4, Episode 15-Dollars and Sense- A Book Review

April 6, 2018

When you think about money, your spending habits, and your instincts do you analyze the mental and emotional side to finance? Most people do not realize that there is a correlation between spending and human emotion. 

Emotions play a powerful role in shaping our financial behavior, often making us our own worst enemies as we try to save, access value, and spend responsibly. 


I have read the book: Dollars and Sense by Dan Ariely and Jeff Kreisler. I am going to give you a short synopsis of the book and my thoughts on the mental side of spending and saving your money.

In this podcast you will:

  • Learn the mental side of finance aka behavioral finance and how your spending habits may or may not change based on your mood.
  • Discover if getting something for free is too good to be true (HINT: You may be surprised by the very common result of a free promotion). 
  • Acquire ways that people avoid pain when it comes to money and spending. A lot of these tips are very easy to put into your routine.
  • Gain practical tools needed to understand and improve your financial choices, save and spend smarter.
