Thanks, Chris, for having me on the Next-Level Income Show. I think we covered it – the critical importance of knowing your own values at the beginning, the incredible value of having (and following) a plan, the very limited utility of using headlines for your investment decisions, the advantages of truly “passive” investing (no phone calls on honey-moons), and how important developing mental resilience really is (especially today).
ABOUT THE EPISODE
We can apply lessons from multiple aspects of life to improve our financial decisions. For Jonathan DeYoe, he was influenced by Buddhism, focusing more on having a better mindset to achieve goals according to one’s plans. Jonathan is an author, speaker, behavioral wealth advisor, and CEO of Mindful Money. In this episode, he joins host Chris Larsen to share financial advice and insights from his book, Mindful Money: Simple Practices for Reaching Your Financial Goals and Increasing Your Happiness Dividend. He emphasizes that one should follow goal-focused tactics to measure progress and success relative to your own goals rather than an index. Listen in and learn more about his approach to developing your goals to help you stay on the path to achieving financial freedom.
