Payoff Science is committed to improving your relationship with money.
Our team of clinical and research psychologists, neuroscientists, psychometricians and data scientists are pushing the boundaries of how we study and understand personality, stress and our relationship with money. We know a healthier, saner and more personalized approach to money is possible, and we’re working to make financial wellness a reality for everyone.
We define financial wellness as a journey toward personal satisfaction with an emphasis on the physical and mental effects of money. We believe life is a journey of self-understanding and want to help you integrate your personal life goals with financial realities to lead to better health and increased well-being.
When we understand our Payoff Personality and habits, we improve our money relationship and become healthier, wealthier and wiser.
Financial Wellness Comes From:
- Understanding your personality and its influence on your financial habits and behaviors
- Assessing your financial resources
- Identifying your sources of financial stress
- Developing a realistic financial plan that incorporates your Payoff Personality, minimizes your stress and achieves your future goals
