  • The placebo effect vs. the nocebo effect.
  • The power of false memories and the "Satanic Panic" phenomenon of the 1980s.

Redefining Wealth & Overcoming Money Struggles with Patrice Washington #325
Patrice Washington is a number one best-selling author who has a unique philosophy about money that not only determines how she coaches others, but it shapes how she lives her own life as well. After her own personal struggles with money that culminated with bankruptcy where she lost everything, she has been able to work her way back to a place of financial well-being. She has been the personal finance expert on both Steve Harvey’s radio and television shows since 2014, and has appeared in dozens of media outlets like Dr. Oz and Fox & Friends. Patrice teaches folks how to handle their money in a disciplined manner, while simultaneously living a fulfilling life. She wants you to build up wealth, but she teaches you how to build it with peace and purpose as your foundation. We redefine wealth in this episode and talk about Patrice’s new book “Redefine Wealth for Yourself”. During this episode we enjoyed a Wake-n-Bake by Terrapin.
