recently wrote about taking articles from this blog and collating them into a series of books. 

Ostensibly, the books above are short works of non-fiction. With the exception of Luck, however, they’re fictional – in the sense that they don’t technically exist (outside of my mind or this blog).

Today, I want to share Why? – What does "wealth" mean to you?

(My 7-year-old daughter, Anna, helped me design the cover.)

Almost everything stems from "why". When it comes to providing financial advice, it's usually best elicited by asking: what does "wealth" mean to you?

In the past couple of years I've been returning to this theme, over and over again. Links are below.


I hope these articles make you pause and reflect.
