    Inspiring, transformative book

    If you, like me, have struggled with integrating your spirituality with your economics, your self-awareness with your bank balance, and all the rest of the challenges that go with showing up consciously around money in our often frenetic lives, Brent Kessel, 'financial planner by day, yogi by dawn,' is your friend. And, his book, 'It's Not About the Money,' is a must-read. It's a remarkably transformative book--the 50+ exercises Brent shares brought me to tears several times--as I re-lived traumatic episodes around money from my childhood and witnessed how these experiences have affected me throughout my adult life. AND how I can now use this awareness to better understand my financial archetypes and create a more conscious life around money. VERY powerful stuff.

    I read this book, unsure of what to expect, in preparation for interviewing Brent Kessel for my radio show. I was interested in the book because it promises information about spiritual and financial abundance AND it was written by someone who actually works in the financial planning field. I've read tons of books on abundance and prosperity, and learned what we all learn from them, but none of them really made any kind of difference in my life. This book somehow tweaked something in my psyche and actually spoke to me. I learned so much about myself and what I thought were just my own personal, goofy and dysfunctional ideas about money. Turns out my 'dysfunctions' are described WORD FOR WORD in this book. Better still, solid advice is offered to help me to move past them and into a much healthier relationship with money and financial planning. I strongly recommend the purchase of this book.

    Thought provoking, profound, empowering!

    An extraordinary book that has changed my life in so many ways! Unlike any other personal finance or money management book out there, this book cuts to the heart of it all and shows us how to recognize and address our own motivations and behaviors surrounding money so that we can begin to transform our financial life. It helps us to align our finances with spiritual fulfillment and it offers practical ways to begin creating true financial security and freedom in our lives. The first part had my attention immediately and I think everyone including myself can relate to the idea of constantly wanting more without ever gaining true satisfaction. This book helped me to understand my own dominant financial archetypes and it has given me excellent practices to create balance in my life. It also has some wonderful, easy to understand, and effective financial planning strategies and techniques.

    People have been waiting for a book like this for quite some time. it is so important for us as a society to really begin to address how important money is, and at the same time, how it isn't the most important thing in our life. If we can find the balance, we will naturally move towards a healthier, and happier place in our lives - with our families, with our purchases, with our friends, and most importantly, with ourselves. I highly recommend this book, and Brent's website.
