How Rich Am I? - An Illustration and Resource for Us All!

finance Jun 07, 2022

Recently, I was going through some old folders on my laptop. I found a training document that my friend and successful former CEO shared with me over a lunch. He would use this illustration and information in his trainings to help participants, especially in the USA, to remember how truly blessed we are.

I hope you find this impactful and helpful when you come across the days where we lack contentment. Lord knows I need the help!
