Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier - Random Thoughts on The Psychology of Money
Play • 48 min

We’re back with another Tuesday episode, where it’s just the two of us, deep-diving into a few topics that we have found interesting lately, talking about what’s going on in our business, and sharing stuff that we have tried out, love, and want to share with you! Today, we are chatting about a book that we both read and really enjoyed - The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel. We definitely had some a-ha moments after going through the book, which entails discussions surrounding the plight of Americans’ inability to set money aside for emergencies, why looking into historical data is not always the best option for determining the future, and why we think it’s important to avoid the dreaded lifestyle creep in order to set yourself up for wealth.

We also talk about Matt’s Amazon wish list (wait until you hear what he got for Christmas!), our takes on investing (this is definitely NOT financial advice), and our thoughts about cool cars, crypto, and being on top of buying the latest gadgets. If you enjoyed this show and want to learn more about how to make your dollar go further while getting into the correct money mindset, be sure to check out our shows with James Altucher and Wealth Without Wallstreet’s Russ Morgan and Joey Mure
