Moving abroad upon retirement is an option that has become increasingly popular among Brits in recent years, with many jumping at the chance to take advantage of more affordable housing, great weather and perceived lifestyle enhancements far from the Brits shores.
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.
Ensuring that you have adequate financial protection for you, your family and any dependants is an important element of financial planning. As a healthy working person with a good income, you may feel reasonably confident that you are able to provide for your family. However, your finances could be more precarious than you think.
What exactly does that mean ‘The happiness dividend’? Curios then you may enjoy reading ‘Mindful Money’.
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.
