Popular speaker: money personality, psychology of money

Sharing personal stories and her experiences working with others, Syble quickly engages audiences. She speaks about money personality, and the psychology of money. In no time, people are thinking of their own money stories and considering their own relationship with money with new eyes.  Using the latest research on how the brain works, she simplifies this complex topic so everyone can understand why we do stupid things or act irrationally even when we know better … and what we can do to change that if we want to.  She identifies six major influences that shape our money habits and attitudes to clarify why some of us can’t part with a penny while others never have a dime to their name … and why those two types often marry each other!  Quick-paced, relevant and pragmatic, everyone leaves with new insights and ideas to move forward.
