Next Gen Personal Finance


Aug 26, 2017

Today on the podcast is behavioral economist Dr. Sarah Newcomb, the author of Loaded: Money, Psychology and How To Get Ahead Without Leaving Your Values Behind. It's a thought-provoking book that focuses less on the mechanics of managing money and more on the psychology. Specifically, Sarah challenges us to look inward to identify the narratives or stories that we tell ourselves about our relationship to money. She shares a very personal story about how her money narrative got in the way of chasing her dream. You will walk away with new ideas on how to think about budgeting, set up a Freedom Fund, avoid "keeping up with the Joneses" and encourage young people to save for retirement. Enjoy!
