I welcome Bob Wheeler, financial expert and motivator, book author, and founder of The Money Nerve, to the show.

Bob is quite a unique individual as he is also both a CPA and stand up comedian! His passion and area of expertise lies in helping people conquer their shame surrounding money, and showing us how we can all avoid making poor financial decisions by teaching us how emotions can dictate our choices. His greatest wish is to simply share this knowledge with people.

Bob poses many thought-provoking questions throughout this show that will help you reevaluate your perspective on money and where it goes, asking great questions like: “Are the things you’re doing financially in concert with your life purpose?”

With thirty years of helping clients under his belt, Bob has distilled a concoction of warmth, humor, information, motivation and budgeting directives that he offers to anyone with financial concerns. And as a man of true integrity with infectious energy, Bob’s crusade for personal growth has cross-pollinated with his accounting practice to create a new approach to personal finances. Combining finances with behaviors, Bob explores his personal concept of creating a healthy relationship with money in his recent book, The Money Nerve. Enjoy having some laughs with Bob and learning how to effectively improve your relationship with money, and you can find his website here.

Do I want it or do I really need it? Journaling really helps to clarify if your spending is in concert with your life purpose. [29:45]

Can one visualize the life they want? Most of us are very conflicted about our wants. [35:35]

The book, The Money Nerve, describes how we have a visceral reaction when we have money problems. It’s physical. He suggests solutions to the money problems. [40:56]

Some steps people can take to get on the right track financially to reduce the stigma of shame are to read, talk, and learn about money. Be aware of what your beliefs are. [49:45]

Journaling is especially useful so you can see your situation. If you are going to go big, make sure you understand it and be sure of it. [54:51]

Sunk cost bias is when we continue going down because you’ve already spent money on it. [57:30]
