Tweetable Quotes

“My dad used to say two things. The first sentence was, ‘In life you can be a hammer or an anvil. Be a hammer.’ And the other is, ‘If you want more money, make more.’” (04:43)

“As an investor, I’m also very transparent about the fact that I started investing with my parents’ money and then that turned into something else after a while. But, I went to see dad for the down payment, and it was dad who co-signed my first couple mortgages. So I had an easier road through that than a lot of people who don’t have that support.” (10:48)

“Coming from a combat sport/martial arts background, if you want to succeed in that environment, your mindset has to be so clean. And I really went through a ten year development period where I was building my martial arts career. But at the same time you have to build your mind into something very strong.” (19:42)

“Getting to enough has nothing to do with luck in the sense of being cognizant of it. I think that we live in a context that’s always trying to push us for ‘more, more, more.’ So, how did I know what was enough? Well, it was a lot of work. It was a lot of introspection and a lot of mindfulness.” (23:26)

“And so it’s not about the dollar figures. It’s about what network are you gonna build and are you gonna get the specific knowledge that you’re gonna be able to implement in your market. And then the best way of doing that is talking to previous grads of whatever program it is.” (32:40)

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.
