PODCAST – #127 How to push through the fear of f*ing up with your finances w. Dr. Amy Silver

Ben Nash

In this episode, I talk to Dr. Amy Silver. She’s a psychologist, speaker, author, and facilitator at her business at Dr. Amy Silver

Dr. Silver is an expert on managing emotions for high performance and wellbeing. We talked a lot about how fear can stop people from making the decisions that will actually lead to them living a bigger life.

We apply it back to what sort of paralyzes people when it comes to money as well, and how fear stops people from taking action. But I personally had a blast chatting to her and, learning a lot of stuff, was taking notes as we were going through. We’ve talked a bit about that and Amy’s journey with money and some of the lessons that she learned along the way. Hope you enjoy this one.
