433 | Scary Ugly, Spendvesting & Turning an Ugly Duckling into a Swan – Chat with Evan Lucas

Humans are not rational creatures.  

Especially when it comes to our finances (I bet we’ve all got a story or two about that impulse buy 😉).  

So how can we identify and navigate our natural human biases and emotions around investing and risk?! 

Folks, in Episode 433 we’re exploring all of this and more as we dive into the fascinating topic of behavioural finances with the help of returning podcast guest and ultimate money mindset guru, Evan Lucas! 

Author of the best-selling book Mind Over Money: Why understanding your money behaviour will improve your financial freedom, he is also an experienced market strategist and super passionate investor! 

From exploring the most common human biases in the finance world to how you can conquer and embrace risk and scary emotions when investing, we’ll also be unpacking:

💰 How to avoid the biggest derailer of investing success 

💰 The evolution of instant gratification across human history   

💰 Your ultimate solution for making investing decisions  

💰 Understanding Hyperbolic Discounting, loving the Scary Ugly & more!  

💰 Why Spendvesting might just be the smartest solution for investors!  

💰 Rational economics: It just doesn’t work! 

💰 And of course, while we have Evan’s bright mind on the couch, we’re deep diving into everything going on in the market today from Super to rising rates.  

Yep, it’s another MASSIVE episode – give it a listen now!
