BEING RICH ISN'T THE SAME AS LIVING RICHLY.


"I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of

so they can see that it's not the answer." -Jim Carrey, actor


Not everyone will be rich. But virtually everyone can choose to live richly.

Empirical and anecdotal evidence point to the following key factors to living richly:

  • Creating financial margin

    No matter how much money you make, you won't live comfortably if you're over-spending. Financial margin brings peace and provides the opportunity to be generous, regardless of your income.

  • achieving higher goals

    Success looks different to all of us, but determining what's most important can help you prioritize your spending.

  • having significant relationships

    Living richly gives you the opportunity to have positive influence on those who mean the most to you; your family and closest friends. Pursuing significant relationships means putting others first, and self second.

it is better to give than to receive

We're not sure what comes first: generosity or happiness. But, the research is robust:


Generous people live happier, healthier lives.


We like the idea of being a firm that inspires people toward generosity. We help clients understand how to use money as a tool to enhance their own lives and the lives of those around them


To us, Living Richly means putting money in its proper place and using it as a tool, not as a goal.
