The True Value of Protection

Many people think of wealth as the value of their savings, investments and assets. However, the ability to keep earning an income is equally important.

The book offers a thoughtful reassessment of how money is just a tool, not the destination.

Is it possible to be a conscientious member of society and grow wealth? The author, a Buddhist and a financial planner, says yes and explains how money drives many of our decisions. We all worry about earning it, spending it, and saving it — regardless of our income level or spiritual perspective. Yet few of us understand money’s true nature. The book explores your deepest beliefs, covers topics to save, invest, pay off debt, and fund your retirement and dreams by building a lifetime income stream. With a foreword by Pulitzer Prize–winner Alice Walker, Mindful Money does all this while emphasising that money is a tool you can use to support your lifestyle, reach your goals, and earn the “happiness dividend” everyone deserves.

Just like physical fitness, being fit financially has many areas. The good news is that just like getting into shape you can assess your financial fitness and take actions to improve it. And if you keep your goals in mind as you earn and spend your money, you can achieve a high degree of financial health over the long run. So the question is, how fit are your finances? And how can you measure it?
