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. Watch our recap above and see below for theSkimm on what you missed:
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 there's still plenty of SkimmU ahead. Sign up here for our next classes.
Say ‘hi’ to our weekly newsletter. Every Friday, we break down the news and info you need to make smarter money decisions.
