How would you describe your relationship with money? Do you regard it as a means to an end, or something that isn't worth thinking about until the postman drops a reminder of an unpaid bill through the mail box? It's that perception of money that will ultimately shape how well - or badly - we manage our finances. Why are some people better at handling money than others? Are they just naturally capable or do they have the right set of values to be financially successful? Those are just some of the ideas explored in the book, "Loaded: Money, Psychology and How to Get Ahead without leaving your values behind." Its author is Doctor Sarah Newcombe, a behavioural economist at the investment research group "Morningstar", who joins Juliet in the studio.
Simon spoke to Patrick McGinnis- author of 'The 10% Entrepreneur - Live your startup dream without quitting your day job', a book that shows how you can be an entrepreneur without having all the risks associated with failure.
Does the idea of trading stocks, options or other financial products appeal to you, or is it something that's better off in the hands of the market professionals? Anyone can trade although some people never make it beyond the first hurdle, especially after losing money. Yet its worth staying the course because with a little bit of patience its possible to learn how to read a market and find the strategies that turn losses into gains. It may sound a bit too good to be true but according to author John Piper its definitely not a fairy tale. He should know because he has been trading for over 30 years with considerable success. His new book, "The Way to Trade Better" explains how to get started and the mindset required for financial success. John Piper joins Juliette Foster on the line to discuss his strategy.
