168 “O” is for Overconfidence

In the 168th episode of the Financial Procast there is a common theme. Being overconfident about money, how much you REALLY have, and what it takes is dangerous.

Confidence is generally a good thing.

But when it comes to money, being too confident can lead to apathy and apathy leads to carelessness. Being careless with your money is not good.

To give you a bit more context for the episode, here are the stories we discuss:
