Redefining the Meaning of Prosperity
Jeff Gitterman Andrew Appel
I went from having nothing to everything I’d ever wanted in the space of about two years, only to discover that success wasn't what I thought it was. Implicit in the statement "money won’t buy happiness" is the idea that something else will, even if we don’t know what that something else is. As a financial advisor, people come to me from all walks of life, each with their own set of financial circumstances, ideas about money, needs, and dreams. People often call in a financial advisor because their relationship to money is unhealthy, but I help them heal how they look at life in general—kind of "wealth management for the soul." There are four pillars to the plan of this book, and each one can be correlated to a key component of financial wisdom. These four pillars are not only foundational for financial success, they can also help bring us many of the things that money can’t buy.
