Tweetable Quotes

“My friend who’s trying to get a new job called me the other day and they asked her, ‘What do you want?’ And she replied, ‘Oh no, I’m good. I don’t need anything.’ I told her that she’s not receiving. They’re asking you what you want; you have to tell them. The universe is trying to bring you stuff and you’re saying, ‘No, I’m good’ and then you’re miserable. So, just now ask for what you want and receive it this time. Ask for what you want, believe it’s already yours, let it go, receive and give gratitude for it.” (14:07) (Dawn)

“Action is the big thing [with manifestation]. You can’t just be like, ‘I want a million dollars today. I’m just gonna sit here on my butt and it’s gonna come to me.’ No, it’s not gonna come to you. You have to do something.” (16:23) (Dawn)

“Make a decision. Go out and educate yourself. Take the first step and meet with someone like us. Learn more and take baby steps. Keep track of your finances.” (26:16) (Dawn)

“I keep investing simple. It’s boring, but it works. It’s called ‘evidence-based investing.’” (30:54) (Dawn)

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.
