Does money make you happy? {Infographic}


Does money make you happy?

On Monday I wrote about the value of finding something more in our lives to not only make ourselves mentally healthier, but financially healthier as well. I made the mistake as many others have of focusing my life on pursuing more money instead of more meaning. Don’t get me wrong, we all need money to survive, and making a lot of money is not a bad thing. However, I think it is a bad thing when it is our primary life focus. And I found this infographic that does a wonderful job of showing the fact that money does not necessarily buy happiness.

Do you think money makes you happy? Are you happier when you spend your money on experiences or people rather than things?

Shannon is a financial planner who left a “traditional” financial services firm to start her own company, The Financial Gym, because she felt traditional financial services firms did not have the tools or resources to help people in their 20s and 30s who are starting out and trying to build assets while also managing debt. She realized that the key to long-term personal financial success is a commitment to financial fitness and making smart financial choices. Through her blog, Financially Blonde, her book, Train Your Way To Financial Fitness, her podcast, Martinis and Your Money and The Financial Gym, Shannon is committed to making financial fitness fun, easy and accessible for everyone.
