The Soul of Money will likely forever transform how you relate to money, and liberate you into transforming how money flows in the world and in your life. No, money does not have a soul, but energy does. Lynne brilliantly shows the wisdom on the old saw: “Money is like manure. If you pile it up, it stinks. When you spread it around, it can fertilize the landscape.” This book is a must-read for all of us to change a world where money stinks.
