    Annie Duke – Why Great Investors Are Great Quitters | #448

    Today’s guest is Annie Duke, a consultant in the decision-making space and previously was a professional poker player who won over 4 million dollars. She’s also a best-selling author and just released her newest book, Quit: The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away.  
    In today’s episode, Annie shares why quitting isn’t always as bad as advertised. She shares what behavioral biases lead us to want to either quit a trade too early or avoid quitting a bad trade, and shares actionable advice you can take to counteract this problem.
