Tweetable Quotes

“The thought of joining the family business and being under the judgmental eye of my mom, my dad, my brother and my sister, I said, ‘Oh no. That is so not happening.’ So, I actually ran as faraway as I could possibly conceive, which was back to France for me. So, becoming an entrepreneur myself wasn’t something I expected to do. It’s something I kind a stumbled into.”(06:26)

“Job security isn’t so secure anymore. People don’t stay in jobs for ten, twenty, thirty years anymore. It’s just unheard of. And there’s not that level of loyalty I think in corporations nearly as much either.”(11:05)

“One of my favorite quotes is, ‘When you look fear in the face, it turns into the nothingness that it actually is.’”(16:45)

“It’s a level of knowledge and expertise that you bring to the table. When you’re nineteen, you’re still green and still learning. So, I’m learning and I’m putting my big girl pants on and I’m trying to look professional, but I’m still not quite sure who I am yet. I think Imposter Syndrome qualifies more as Imposter Syndrome when you’ve grown a bit more, you’re more mature, you know who you are to degrees, and you’ve had some level of established profession.”(18:00)

“No matter how hard someone tries to separate their business from their personal life, they are the human at the center of all of it. And it’s the beliefs they hold about themselves that have them show up fully or hide out - whether that’s personally or professionally.”(26:53)

“We all deal with self-doubt at some point in our lives; no one escapes it. The trick is learning to recognize it in the moment more quickly, because you’re more self-aware, and then learning how to respond effectively versus react from a place of pain or fear. That’s the crux right there is how do I respond versus react. And that’s where the learning happens.”(34:20)

“If we can take more time to pause in our day, to get quiet, to tune in to our own heart - our owns pirit in that place of mindfulness - to go to that void, that we can get more connected to our own higher self, our own divinity if you will, and let that inform us as to what’s needed now.”(53:10)

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.
