Maximize Happiness by Managing Money

managing money to maximize happiness

I heard two new great phrases pertaining to money this week. The first was “living below your means” which I wrote about in a previous blogpost after hearing Suze Orman promoting her new Money Class. Living within ones means is now a common phrase, but below ones means? – now that’s a concept that I truly hope goes viral. 

The second phrase appeared in an article one of my favorite clients, Eddie M sent me – the phrase is “time affluent.”

How beautiful is that?  With words like “A new level of mindfulness” and “a renewed level of attention to finances”, this article on money and happiness is one of the best I’ve read.

I wished I had written the article Managing Money To Maximize Happiness myself, but Laura Rowley beat me to it. I haven’t yet read her book, Money & Happiness, but I’m guessing it’s a winner.

What both phrases, both books and both authors have in common are the desire and need to spread the word for all of us to begin developing a better relationship with our money.
