Watch SkimmU: Psychology of Money

Mar 26, 2021

In our first SkimmU course, we teamed up with Marsha Barnes, CEO and founder of The Finance Bar. Because understanding how and why we make $$$ decisions can help you make smarter ones. Check out the pre-coursework, then watch the recording above.


  • Your core money beliefs, cognitive biases, and emotions can mess up your money judgment.

  • Acknowledging how you think about money and journaling can help you take control.

  • You can “trick” your brain into making smarter money moves by emotionally connecting to your goals, visualizing success, and automating some habits like saving.

  • You can build financial confidence by aligning your values and financial decisions, finding an accountability partner, and educating yourself on finances.

‎The Psychology of Money course may be behind us, but you can put what you learned into practice by doing your post-course HW. Then check out our other classes.
