Do you struggle with money? You’re not alone.
Money is a means, not an end. It’s a necessity of life for sure, but more money does not always guarantee a “good life”. Money enables many aspects of modern life, but as a dominant consideration it becomes destructive. 
The paradox is that more time and energy spent on personal finance does NOT create better outcomes. Unlike many other parts of life, we can’t create better outcomes by being smarter, spending more time, or putting in more effort.
Join Mindful Money author and experienced 40-year investor Jonathan DeYoe as he shares stories from artists, authors, entrepreneurs, and other advisors about how they mindfully minimize their need to think about money and get more out of life.
If you aren’t happy with your finances, feel like money takes more time that it should, or want to place your financial decisions into the broader context of your life, this show is for you. 
Each episode will draw the line between the “enough” activities that the academics tell us are additive to family outcomes, and those “little bit more” efforts that take time and sap energy, but do NOT improve outcomes.

    Tweetable Quotes“Saving is such an important part of being financially healthy, but I took it to an extreme where I actually made us live like we were poor. And we would sock everything away so that I wouldn’t see it, because I had this deep perception that I might turn into a nasty person if I had access to all of this money.” (04:43) (Kim)
    “I think, as so often happens with things, whatever is the negative that is going on seems to have the stronger influence on the brain. It’s not too surprising that I came out with that unhealthy relationship with money because that was the negative piece that my brain hung onto. As our brains process information, we all absorb it differently, and it impacts us differently. It wasn’t until I was well into adulthood that I started recognizing that maybe that’s not the healthiest approach that I have.” (08:03) (Kim)
    “When I first sat down I had a divine inspiration one night that I really didn’t want to work foranybody else. I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I wanted to have that freedom lifestyle. I wantedto be able to make choices about how I spend my time, who I spend my time with, things likethat. So, I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur.”(13:45) (Kim)
    “Some people will ask what’s the difference between a coach and consultant. My personaldefinition is that a consultant will come in and tell you how to do something. So, if you hire aSales consultant, they will come in and tell you how to do your Sales; they will train your people.A Marketing consultant may write your entire Marketing Plan for you.

    Tweetable Quotes“I ended up knowing everybody in the state - every bank, every real estate firm. It wasn’t intentional, but it dramatically helped my business because I was a trustworthy person, I was a good developer, and I was really well connected. I knew the best students and I helped place them at the best firms.” (14:03) (Dr. Eric)
    “Living in the Gap is having it all. I think that people can live the life of their dreams, that this idea that spirituality and business are at odds is a mistake, that mindfulness is primarily focus. And, I have found personally that you get more done in less time if you’re focused and that mindfulness is actually a compliment to work.” (15:19) (Dr. Eric)
    “What I’ve seen, from myself and from my friends that have been really successful, is that when you check off the list, you add more to the list. First it was a house, then it was a condo, then it was the trips to Maui, and then it becomes, ‘one country club isn’t enough, I gotta have two.’ I think that’s ‘the space race,’ and I look at it like what’s really going on here? I don’t pretend to know. It looks to me like it’s really hard to be happy with money.” (20:08) (Dr. Eric)
    “My outer purpose is what I do. I’m on a podcast with you. I’m running ‘Living in the Gap.’ I’m building a real estate firm. I’m teaching at the University. My outer purpose is just what I do. But, with presence, I can...

    30:11 – One thing Toby would like others to know about her and the one question she would want to know the truth about
    Tweetable Quotes“I grew up in a family where my dad owned a Marketing Research company. And so, we literally grew up in the business. The business was almost like another sibling.” (03:43) (Toby)
    “I think, for me, being intentional means that I have more of a structure to work with and I have a definite focus. So, when I decided to go down this road, I didn’t really have a network here in Atlanta, where I’m based, and I didn’t really have a network nationwide. But I did have a network of marketers and social media friends, but not within the culinary world. So, what I began to do is I went back to where I had gained network, community, and success. And that was, believe it or not, in social media.” (12:19) (Toby)
    “That’s what I found within the culinary world. I found the integration of passion and self. And Ifound that the chefs and the foodpreneurs were people that were willing to step out and takethat chance so their small businesses hopefully will grow to be larger businesses. But that’swhere I found my passion within that world.”(16:43) (Toby)
    “It used to be called ‘the long tail,’ where there wasn’t a lot of competition in that part. And so, if you could find something where there’s not a lot of competition - which is in ‘the long tail’ - even though the audience may be smaller, you’re more likely to cut through the clutter and you’re more likely to get heard.” (24:09) (Toby)

    Sharmeen Bhanji-Abeysinghe - Creating A Delicious Relationship with Money Through Healing, Movement, and Energetics

    Sharmeen Bhanji-Abeysinghe is a Spiritual Somatic Movement Mentor. She speaks of movement as medicine and she’s on a mission to eradicate childhood trauma due to poverty.
    Today, Sharmeen joins the show to share lessons she learned from her own experiences with childhood financial trauma, why we’ve become so disassociated with our own bodies and initial steps we can take to heal our bodies and minds from financial trauma.

    36:52 – The last thing Sharmeen changed her mind about and one thing she would like others to know about her
    Tweetable Quotes“Basically what I’ve learned is the energy behind what money actually is. And, when we move it from this physical, ‘I can’t have’ paper substance to the understanding that it is energy, then it changes the perspective on how much we can have. And so, for me, my relationship with money has actually blossomed and grown and become this delicious relationship that I’m fully in love with through healing, and through movement, and through energetics.” (09:46) (Sharmeen)
    “It is really about connecting with the sensations in the body. And my belief through my years of research and even my own experience is that the subconscious mind, or subconscious programming - the things that are sticky and still holding us in those fear states or any of those high emotional states - lives in your body and communicates with us through the body’s sensations.” (15:42) (Sharmeen)
    “Either way, the impact on the psyche and the way the brain is actually formed - and it’s not what the brain thinks, but how it’s formed - it’s the structural beingness of the brain that changes when we experience trauma.” (23:34) (Sharmeen)
    “We hear so much about ‘money mindset, money mindset, money mindset.’ It’s drilled into us that we have to have this money mindset and do affirmations and meditations and all these things. But the truth of the matter is that the mindset that we’re trying to change - the structures in the brain - we’re forgetting that it’s also in the body.” (31:28) (Sharmeen)

    Tweetable Quotes“I remember very distinctly thinking, ‘Well, if I want to make money, I just have to create something of value and that will be how I make money.’ And that’s kinda how I’ve existed over the past couple of decades.” (05:09) (Adam)
    “In conversations with some of our clients, when we’re doing money coaching and relationship to money coaching - we’ll often say to people, ‘How much money do you need to feel safe and secure?’ And one partner will give a number and the other one will say, ‘That’s not true. There’s no amount of money that will make you feel safe and secure, because we’ve had that money sitting there for X amount of years and you’re still insecure about money.’ And I think that sort of goes to the very heart of maybe the message that we’re given early on, or an early money memory that was created around money.” (10:53) (Adam)
    “We have this mantra. ‘If you do for two years what most people won’t do, you can do for the rest of your life what most people can’t do.’” (13:36) (Adam)
    “I truly believe that the single best thing that someone can do that really wants to dial into their own financial literacy is find someone that’s living a life that they aspire to and then go deep on that person’s content.” (19:41) (Adam)
    “It’s one of my favorite quotes, ‘Our lives are perfectly engineered for the results that we’re currently getting.’ So, whatever you’re living right now has been the product of the last six or twelve months or five years of decisions that have put you in this place. And if you want to change what the future looks like, just change the decisions you make today.” (26:10) (Adam)
    “The two greatest expenses we have in life are taxes and the interest expense on debt.” (34:36) (Adam)
    “The way to be financially successful is to make sure your income is always greater than your expenses for as long as humanly possible.” (37:41) (Adam)
