• Michael Sandler interviews Jonathan DeYoe on Mindful Money and simple practices to reach your financial goals and increase your happiness dividend!


If you’ve ever wanted more savings in your life, and to increase your happiness dividend then do we have the Mindful Money show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Jonathan K DeYoe, a financial adviser for over 20 years, and a longtime Buddhist. He’s also the author of a brilliant book I wish I could have read at least 20 years ago, Mindful Money: Simple Practices for Reaching Your Financial Goals and Increasing Your Happiness Dividend.

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about simple practices for reaching your financial goals, and increasing your happiness dividend.

That plus we’ll talk about burger barns and humanities majors, a bluebird of unhappiness, holding coca-cola forever, the benefits of boring plain vanilla, why growing money’s like growing vegetables especially when returning from Greece, going to the mall in South Dakota, 600 dollar Canon cameras, and how in the world your mom intentionally raised a financial planner!





Jonathan K. DeYoe is a California-based financial adviser and a longtime Buddhist. During his twenty years as a financial adviser, he has managed investments at Morgan Stanley, UBS Paine Webber, and Salomon Smith Barney. In 2001 he founded his own wealth management firm, DeYoe Wealth Management. Today Jonathan manages nearly $250 million for over two hundred families and foundations in the United States and overseas. In his spare time, Jonathan speaks publicly about personal finance and contributes opinion pieces to publications such as Business Insider, Huffington Post, Yahoo! Finance, SF Business Times, The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch, The Motley Fool, and The Christian Science Monitor. Jonathan lives in Berkeley with his wife and two children. His blog can be found at happinessdividend.com, and you can follow him on Twitter @HappinessDiv.
