Tweetable Quotes

“At the time, I was a member of Rotary International. And so I just went to them with this idea. I said, ‘I have an idea for a service project. What if I go to local high schools and I teach young adults about money before they graduate, and get in the real world, and start making all the mistakes that my friends and I were making.’ And they loved the idea and that’s how it began.” (03:45)

“Ultimately, what I know about myself now is I was always meant to be an entrepreneur. I was always meant to work for myself. And I always wanted to get to that kind of life, but I didn’t really know how to do it.” (10:49)

“I do think that it’s a privilege to tune out what the world is telling us. And anyone can do it; this is free. It’s your choice.” (19:21)

“Building wealth is twenty percent strategy and eighty percent mindset.” (20:51)

“The definition of financial independence is the point when the income that you receive from sources other than a job can pay for your expenses.” (27:28)

“Really, when you think about money, it is just this intangible thing that we are creating more of every day. The government is printing more of it every single day. We’ve got new cryptocurrency coins all the time. When you really start to think about money, it truly is infinite and you can call more of it into your life.” (35:17)

“That feeling of accomplishing the pillars of wealth and then getting really good at defaulting to healthier habits just takes practice. There’s no such thing as perfection when it comes to money. It’s just about doing your best. And every day is an opportunity to practice.” (46:08)

About the Podcast

Mindful Money
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.
