Money cannot purchase happiness. Yes, it simplifies the other tasks by smoothing out some of the rough spots. However, it is not the determining factor of happiness. Instead, money influences many of our choices. We are all concerned with earning, spending, and saving money, regardless of our income level or spiritual beliefs. Yet few of us comprehend the fundamental essence of money. Today’s guest, Jonathan K.

There is no doubt that you have a proper job title for yourself. But, also, there are things you enjoy doing while you’re not at work. For example, you may be an accountant who enjoys Netflix marathons, a lawyer who enjoys ballroom dancing, and an engineer who enjoys helping out at animal shelters. However,  the first part regarding your job title is generally irrelevant on most occasions. Instead, asking follow-up questions about your human factor is more engaging. If you give it some thought, there is a job title, but behind the job title is a human being. Hence the last bit merely speaks to what other aspects of your life you are beyond the job title. Yet many of us don’t view ourselves that way.

As a result, our businesses are losing productivity, creativity, and edge in the marketplace. On the other hand, individuals also bear the costs of stress, exhaustion, and stress-related health problems.
