As Doug Lynam, our podcast guest says, money is not the root of all evil, but we all need to be a little bit wealthy. That may seem like a controversial statement from someone who spent 20 years as a Monk, but as Doug talks about in this episode, there is a way to get in a healthy relationship with your money so you can live life on your terms.
