Money, Gratitude, Relationships, Business, Happiness


How do *feel* about money? We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, money and happiness expert Ken Honda shares with us why--not the money itself, but our emotions around money--have so much to do with the degree of happiness we experience. That and more on today’s show.

Bob’s Thought of the Day

We’ll explore:

  • The beauty of a free-market: a place where people can choose to buy and pay for what they wish based on their own values.
  • Why money tends to be one of the most emotional concepts there is, and why most people’s reactions to money have a negative ring.
  • Several prosperity-based authors who can help you override the constant messages of lack we receive from so many sources.

You’ll discover:

  • The story that opens Ken’s book--a rather strange story by Western standards.
  • The difference between Happy Money and Unhappy Money.
  • Why most of us are already in a deeply committed, unhappy relationship with our money.
  • The tragedy that began Ken’s quest to learn and understand the meaning of money.
  • Two powerful words that will help you to start to transform your relationship with money.
