Banking and FinTech Executives Combine Practical and Philosophical Thinking in New Guide to Creating A Strong Financial Future

Chris Zadeh and Angelique Schouten Release “Monkey Money Mind” with ForbesBooks   

NEW YORK (June 25, 2019) – Chris Zadeh and Angelique Schouten today announced the publication of Monkey Money Mind: How to Stop Monkeying Around with Your Money (available now). The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.

In Monkey Money Mind, authors Zadeh and Schouten combine life lessons and experience, research, and Buddhist philosophy to reveal the reasons why people struggle to make the right financial decisions.

“While the rational mind may focus on the future, the ‘Monkey Money Mind’ is squarely focused on the present,” said Schouten. “Our Monkey Mind seeks instant gratification, and that is the biggest challenge, especially when it comes to money. Decisions are driven by passion and emotion rather than reason and hard facts.”

In the book, the authors aim to relate to and empathize with readers as they elaborate the reasons people often stop thinking when they start spending. It offers tips, lessons learned and success stories on how to overcome debt, save money, invest money and generally improve your relationship with your finances. Featuring interviews with notable personalities – including Dr. Harry Markowitz, winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize, Economic Sciences – practical financial insights are conveyed through stories of struggles, mistakes, and ultimately, success.

All proceeds from book sales go to The Gorilla Organization which, for more than two decades, has worked to save gorillas from extinction.

Monkey Money Mind: How to Stop Monkeying Around with Your Money is now available on Amazon.com.
