Investiphobia: Overcome Your Deepest Investment Fears

Posted by in Blog, Investiphobia

We grow up imagining how happy we will be when we finally have money. But many people discover they have very strong fears relating to their money. Some are more than just concerned. Their fears have reached phobic levels. In a capitalist economy, one would think we would be very comfortable and open about money — and our feelings about our investments. Yet many people are not at all comfortable discussing their investments. They have fears that have negatively impacted their investment decisions. To prevent these fears from affecting their portfolio, they must be open to recognizing what they are, and then effectively address them. When fear is ignored or denied, it can become a phobia that will not only destroy your investment portfolio, it will also affect your life.

The book includes a quiz to help you determine if you have Investiphobia. Many of the people suffering from Investiphobia are unaware of their condition which may be caused by one or more of eighteen separate fears. You do not need to learn them all, just the fears you find applicable to you. Some of these fears, like the fear of loss, are very common. Others, like the fear of not keeping up with the Joneses, may be new to you.

You will learn to identify the many individual fears that may cause investiphobia with examples of the ways they may manifest in your investment life. And you will find suggestions on the best ways to address each fear with guidance on keeping these fears from affecting you and your portfolio.

Finding Your Financial Life Guide is the second half of Investiphobia. It provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide designed to give you the tools you need to find and choose the right advisor for you.

Investiphobia is available at: CreateSpace Amazon B&N
