Beyond Cashflow

Start with Why.  It is common in our culture for someone to start with a lofty goal, achieve it, and then be left with a feeling of emptiness that what they wanted didn’t really satisfy them as they would’ve hoped.  For this reason, I believe that more than cash flow (or any other goal for that matter), our purpose is the most important thing in our lives. Without it, we are wasting away and it’s my belief that a life without a purpose is completely empty.  I have been so inspired about my purpose from many sources and I wanted to share these with you to help you on your journey. Use whatever is helpful and don’t use whatever you feel is unhelpful to you. This section is about YOUR PURPOSE; Why you are here, and broader conversations about life and spirituality.  I would also love to hear what has helped you discover your purpose and gives meaning to your life.
