Does Money = Happiness?

Money ≠ Happiness

Money does NOT equal happiness.

Happiness increases when your use of money is in line with your values.

The more you use your money in service of that which you value, the more content and happy you will be.

We’re going to help you identify your values so that you can easily express them and identify when you are or are not using your money in service of them.

“Mark Complete” when you’re ready to continue.
