Today’s guest is Annie Duke, a consultant in the decision-making space and previously was a professional poker player who won over 4 million dollars. She’s also a best-selling author and just released her newest book, Quit: The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away.
In today’s episode, Annie shares why quitting isn’t always as bad as advertised. She shares what behavioral biases lead us to want to either quit a trade too early or avoid quitting a bad trade, and shares actionable advice you can take to counteract this problem.
As we wind down, we touch on The Alliance for Decision Education, a non-profit Annie founded to empower students with essential skills to make better decisions. Click this link to learn more about the organization’s virtual poker tournament on October 27th at 6:30p ET.
