Song of the Open Road: Love & Money Included.


Mark Butler—financial advisor, author—muses on the words of the poet Walt Whitman, being 20-something, life decisions, and money…

This is #2 of 5 videos apropos young people, life, decision-making, and money. Theme herein: If you take to the Open Road, and we hope you do, then think “Mandala.” Your mandala. Mark employs the term Thought Partner, as well. Oftentimes we make our best decisions through relationship. By talking things through others.

Financial advisor, author, and elephant journal contributor, Mark Butler, is your host. He’s telling stories and offering a few conceptual frames. The premise of his work is this: Folks who pursue Life Paths of meaning and creativity, whose basic approach isn’t capital-centric or materialistic—these folks should be the canniest in matters of money, economy, and so on. Henry David Thoreau knew this. You can, too.


In case you missed it: Check out Mark on Waylon’s January 22, 2014  Walk the Talk Show. It was a lively exchange on life, finances, emotional intelligence, and the Typology posited in Mark’s first book, Zen Money Blues. Or, perhaps you’re more into the topic of money-in-relationship. On the January 29, 2014 Walk the Talk Show, you can see Waylon, Maria and Mark head right into this wild country! It’s thematic to Mark’s second book: Lion Hearted Love: Rising to the Challenge of Money-in-Relationship.
