Going Against the Greats – Why You Shouldn’t Pay Yourself First!

Note: This episode is a re-run of one of our older episodes. It originally aired on 8th June 2017 😊  

According to Albert Einstein, “Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it…and he who doesn’t, pays it.” 

In this week’s episode, Bryce and Ben discuss the fascinating power of compounding. 

Tune is as they answer listeners’ questions, explain how you benefit from delayed gratification, and share their experiences and advice on property investing!

So what can we do to create lasting financial habits and behaviours instead of falling back into old money habits?   

Folks, in today’s episode, we’re sharing a scientifically backed solution that’ll reveal how to achieve your goals financially and in life.  

From introducing feedback loops to creating accountability (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg), we’re uncovering how these can be used to boost goal achievement, motivation, self-efficacy, and more!  

It’s a revolutionary episode where we dive beyond the waters of investing psychology and into the deeper, murkier waters of why humans act the way we do. Give it a listen now!
