The goal of MoneyCortex is to show you different opportunities to improve your personal finances in ways that are sustainable within your lifestyle for the long-term.

We all work different jobs, live in different places, have different goals, learn best in different ways, and have different strengths. That’s why a one-size-fits-all approach to our personal finances doesn’t work. However, two things are the same, our finances are affected by our habits, and we can all change habits thanks to neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout your life. That means it’s possible for you to develop new money-making habits and money-saving habits at any time. According to BrainWorks,

With every repetition of a thought or emotion, we reinforce a neural pathway – and with each new thought, we begin to create a new way of being. These small changes, frequently enough repeated, lead to changes in how our brains work.  

The idea of MoneyCortex is that you not only discover ways to improve finances but you can understand if they’re ideal for you. If they’re ideal then it’s a case of pulling those ways into your life and building new neural pathways over time so that your habits with money are changed for the better.
