“All to say, who you are, what you are about, your goals, purpose, fulfillment… these are what matter, and they help us create the signposts of our financial life. Money is not an end in and of itself, nor is it a beginning. It’s a means to an end, an entity we can use to transfer value, fulfill our needs, live our values, and move further into a life of purpose.” ~ from Morgan's latest book, "Money with Purpose."
