Thinking intelligently and doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. It’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people!

Money (ie investing, personal finance, and business decisions) is typically taught as a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do. But in the real world people don’t make financial decisions on a spreadsheet. They make them at the dinner table, or in a restaurant or an elevator, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together.
