What’s the best piece of advice that you’ve received about money?

The best piece of advice would have to be that money isn’t anything other than energy.  It is representative of our life energy, which means it is a reflection of how we expend our energy.  So if how we make, save, invest and spend our money is filled with love, wisdom, presence and joy then that is merely a reflection of our own self. 

What scares you most about money?

Nothing in the present moment scares me about money.  When I think about the past I feel fear about not having enough.  When I think about the future I feel fear about losing what I have.

What has been your best investment?

My best investment without any question has been in myself.  I love everything I’ve been able to do to learn, grow, expand and, most importantly, love about myself thanks to making investments in myself.

How would you define financial freedom?

Financial freedom is … a mindset that is residing in the present moment and is filled with trust that everything is Divinely perfect no matter what.

Apart from money and assets, what other things in life contribute to wealth?

Everything in life contributes to wealth.  Money and assets are just one part of the entire picture of what wealth means to me.  This is why I created The Wealth Flower Assessment Tool to help myself and others gain perspective of what wealth means to us.  I give this tool away for free on the home page of my website, wealthclinic.com

What advice would you give your younger self about money?

Don’t worry.  Follow your passion even if nothing is telling you to but your small voice inside.  Learn how to listen to this voice and allow it to guide your actions as it has more wisdom than anything else.  Also learn how to tell the difference between the voice that is filled with wisdom and the one that isn’t.
