Fascinating Psychology, Investing, Business, and More

Several advisors I know have a sticky note of Daniel Crosby’s famous Four Pillars of Investor Psychology on their desks. I have learned a lot from this show and Daniel's books and social media presence. He's a very thoughtful person and his interdisciplinary angle is brain food. As a psychology major turned marketer who focuses on finserv, this is everything I like in one place.

Daniel interviews a range of guests and it keeps the lens wide - listeners benefit. He’s a brilliant guy, and asking good questions like he does is a skill few podcasters possess. This show is on my favorites list and you can start anywhere because it’s mostly evergreen. Five stars!
