In this episode we talk to Chris Zadeh and Angelique Schouten, the authors of Monkey Money Mind.
In the book the authors explore the psychological influences that spur our irrationality and mute our reason when it comes to financial decision-making. Chris and Angelique’s Monkey Money Mind focuses on why we stop thinking when we start spending.
Chris and Angelique set their sights on bringing an end to the feelings-based approach to money management. Their advice is straightforward and honest, and the concepts in Monkey Money Mind are accessible, delivered with an inviting, but bold tone that challenges readers to tame their monkey mind and begin thriving financially.
