Mindful Money: Simple Practices for Reaching Your Financial Goals and Increasing Your Happiness Dividend
Is it possible to be a conscientious citizen of the world and grow wealth? The author, a Buddhist and a financial planner says “yes” and shows exactly how. DeYoe shows how money drives so many of our decisions. But while we worry about earning it, spending it, and saving it, few of us face it head on. The whole point of Buddhism, he says, is “to deal with what is, to look it straight in the eye.” So instead of averting our eyes, deferring to experts, or engaging in get-rich-quick magical thinking, DeYoe shows readers, no matter their income level or spiritual perspective, how to save and invest, pay off debt, and invest for retirement according to their deepest beliefs. The author does all of this while emphasizing that money is merely a tool for providing not only material peace of mind but also “the happiness dividend” we all deserve.
