Build a better financial future for yourself and the world from a trustworthy source.
Former monk turned financial advisor, Doug Lynam, shares the rules of money management that will change your approach to earning, saving, and investing.
From Monk to Money Manager is an entertaining journey through Lynam’s relationship with the almighty dollar—his childhood in a rich family, the long-haired hippie days running away from materialism, time in the Marine Corps looking for selfless service, and his twenty years in the monastery under a vow of poverty where he began helping alleviate others’ financial burdens. This all led to his current profession as a financial advisor.
In this unique look at wealth from a spiritual perspective, Lynam shares his belief that God doesn’t expect us to live in poverty. The truth is, we need financial peace so we can help others. When money becomes a part of our spiritual practice, used in love and service, it can bring us closer to our highest spiritual ideals.
He also provides clear, step-by-step guidance on how to grow “a little bit wealthy.” His insights include how to:
Invest ethically to grow wealthy
Conquer your psychological money monsters
Establish an emergency fund
Create and stick to a good budget
Start your own business
Share your wealth intelligently
