Sample Talks (1)

Money Makes Me Crazy--How About You? The Myth of the Rational Consumer.

Entertaining, informational, and non-technical presentation on why money makes people crazy. The presentation is for anyone who has ever gone into a store to buy milk and bread, spend a small fortune--and forgot the milk and bread. Humans are not hardwired to work well with money. Our biology, culture and beliefs keep getting in the way. Money success is about managing behavior--not money. The presentation can be customized for professionals and the general public.
