MoneyZen: The Art & Craft of Creating Financial Well-Being
2019 dates TBD
Money is a topic that causes stress and worry in households across the globe. It doesn’t have to be this way! Many people think they must “do” something complex with their personal finances in order “have” enough money to “be” happy. In spiritual circles this framework is called “Do, Have, Be.” This mindset frequently leads to overwhelm, confusion, and anxiety. By contrast, practitioners of the MoneyZen philosophy operate from a place of “Be, Do, Have.” They have tapped into the age-old secret of being in alignment with their money (a.k.a. their life’s energy and authentic purpose), which leads to clarity about what to “do” with their lives, in order to arrive at a place where they “have” joy and well-being. This frameworks leads to calm, confidence, and clarity around one’s finances – and increased life happiness overall. In this 3-part program you will learn:
- A new holistic framework for thinking about money in a mindful, connected, and conscious manner
- 5 simple steps that drive long-term investment success – powerful choices that you can control
- Common challenges and solutions encountered on the road to financial well-being
