Economics Controls Process

Episode 047

Economics is all about where we place value and how we choose to allocate our resources. Dr. Joshua Fisher leads us through a discussion on how we can better plan ahead and choose where we want to spend not just our money, but our time and energy as well.

"If you're not thinking a little bit about your money things are probably out of kilter."

Josh shares about a time when he did not plan well and the stress and disappointment it caused him. We also get in to our brains’ ability to ignore things and Josh shares with us how he organizes his day and week for success. He throws in a few other productivity tips for us as well.

When Josh told he had a Han Solo vest so I knew I was ready to do another Star Wars themed costume. In Episode 018 I was a Jedi. This time I chose Padme Amidala as my inspiration.

Follow the show on Instagram @moneyheartshow to see more pics of my costumes from each episode. I also include my guest’s costume when they choose to wear one.
