Happy Money

Happy Money

By Ken Honda
Ken Honda is a household name in his home country of Japan, and his thoughtful, uplifting, and practical financial advice should make him one in the US, too. I love his unique philosophy about money: that you should treat it like an honored and welcome guest, allowing it to come and go without resentment. This is an especially good read for anyone who finds financial matters overwhelming or intimidating, as he shows you how to turn money into a force for good in both your life and others’.
