I think you’re going to enjoy this. Lots of you have suggested that I get today’s guest onto the show, and though it took a while (down to me, not him) I’m delighted that we’ve made it happen, and I don’t think it’ll be the last time, either. Stay tuned for a blinding conversation with Barney Whiter, AKA The Escape Artist.

Of all the influencing factors that will determine the success or otherwise of your wealth-building, your own behaviour is the biggest deal of all. As New Accumulators, we have some lessons to learn…
We’re spending some time looking at some of the major biases that we bring to bear when we’re investing, and how they often hold us back from being really successful investors. Today, we’re talking about ANCHORING.
