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.
