Happy Friday and a big welcome to all new subscribers, thanks for subscribing.
Here is this week’s collection of Wealth Beyond Money Top 5 things on my mind.
1) One Wealth Beyond Money Idea
“Let us prepare our minds as if we’d come to the very end of life. Let us postpone nothing. Let us balance life’s books each day. The one who puts the finishing touches on their life each day is never short of time.” -Seneca
Memento Mori is Latin for remember you die. Dark and macabre?
Truth is our mortality can be seen as a curse or a blessing. The interpretation is something we get to choose.
Choosing to live with memento mori awareness as a blessing will allow you to savor the small, daily things you enjoy and not sweat the small inconveniences of life.
Memento mori when you wake up and carpe diem. Memento mori when you fall asleep and be grateful for the experience.
Memento mori when you say goodbye to your loved ones. Memento mori when you get upset or anxious.
I started writing Wealth Beyond Money as a result of a near death experience almost ten years ago. That experience motivated me to find ways to buy back my time and freedom to design a life with memento mori awareness based on the things I most value, not the formulaic life of quiet desperation I was living.
2) One Tweet
Is financial independence possible on a modest income? You may want to reconsider your beliefs. The financial independence math is easy the psychology less so.
3) One Thing I’m Exploring
COIN chronicles the rise of Coinbase founder Brian Armstrong harnessing the power of the emerging crypto technology to promote a mission of global economic freedom.
If you are curious what entrepreneurism looks like in the crypto world this documentary will give you insight into the psychology required to grow a business while not destroying your relationships with co founders and investors.
4) One Quote

5) One Question For You
What is the opportunity cost of not taking risks because security is more important?
