Eva Haller Interviews Joey and Brad on the Psychology of Wealth

What is the Psychology of Wealth?
There is a lot of talk about the psychology of wealth, behavioral finance, and the way your mind impacts your money. The basic definition of the psychology of wealth is the study of our behavior with money. Success with money isn't about knowledge, IQ, or how good you are at math. It's about behavior, and everyone is prone to certain behaviors over others.
Understanding those behaviors is taking the philosophy a step further. There are about 100 most common problems that humans make when it comes to decision-making. Joey and Brad have connected all 100 to areas of financial planning that Mission Wealth services, providing solutions to any road-blocks our brains may auto-create for us.
