Reflecting on 2019

Embracing Generosity with Scott Chin of Seattle's Union Gospel Mission

Often, we equate giving solely with the act of donating money, but it is so much more than that. Giving can be a transformative act, moving you beyond yourself and cultivating a genuine ability to empathize with the struggles of our fellow human beings. I experienced this firsthand while serving with my wife at Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission (UGM). This organization seeks to see, hear, know and love the people experiencing homelessness in King County. In this episode of The Wealth Confidant podcast, I am honored to be speaking with UGM’s new President, Scott Chin. We learn what brought Scott to UGM and where he hopes to see the organization go in the future. Scott reflects on inspiring stories of personal transformation, tells us about UGM's lifesaving recovery programs and shares how people can help further the organization’s work. You can learn more about Scott Chin and Union Gospel Mission by visiting their website: www.ugm.org and following them on social media at @SeattlesUG...

Trevor Moawad on the Power of Neutral Thinking

Be positive. Think on the bright side. We’ve all heard advice like this at some point in our lives. We also know that changing your mindset isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. While studies do show that thinking and speaking negatively can have a hugely adverse effect on us, “being positive” just isn’t a realistic solution for many people. Today’s guest, Trevor Moawad, emphasizes a different strategy: neutral thinking. Trevor is the founder of Moawad Consulting Group. He specializes in mental conditioning for high performing athletes like Russell Wilson as well as military and business organizations. Trevor is also the author of the upcoming book, It Takes What It Takes. Readers will learn how to apply his methods to their own lives in order to overcome challenges -- and thrive. To learn more about Trevor and his work, visit moawadconsultinggroup.com Trevor and I dig into: What we can learn from top athletes. How to become a judgment-free thinker. The impact language has on our mindset. The importance of discipline and process in moving beyond the negative.

Embracing Fear with Patrick Sweeney

Patrick Sweeney is turning fear on its head to help others live a more fulfilled life. Patrick is a full-time adventurer. He’s on a mission to help others use fear as fuel. The key to unlocking your inner adventurer might not be what you think. Patrick encourages people to embrace fear rather than avoid it in order to grow and make better decisions. Even though Patrick’s an Olympic level rower, he wasn’t always out chasing hair-raising adventures — he worked as a successful tech entrepreneur until a rare case of leukemia had him fighting for his life. This milestone gave Patrick a new perspective. Today, he draws on his entrepreneurial background, fighting spirit, and desire to help people in order to live his life to the fullest — and support others to do the same. On this episode, we get into: —The physiology behind fear —Going from success to significance —How to live in the present —The path to living big To learn more about turning meaningful wealth into a meaningful life filled with passion and purpose, connect with me on social media @jcchristianson or send me an email at john@highlandprivate.com Music: “Day Is Gonna Come” by Royal Deluxe

Simplifying the Complex World of Money with Brian Portnoy

One of the main reasons people seek out financial professionals is because money can be so complicated. A great financial advisor is someone you can trust. A person who can listen and translate what you want and need in your life into actionable plans, and who understands your values and how to align your money with them. It can go beyond being an advisor to what I consider being a confidant. Financial advisors aren’t traditionally well versed in the emotional and psychological connections to money. But, we are starting to see more and more advisors make their clients’ overall happiness a number one priority. Brian Portnoy earned his doctorate at the University of Chicago and has worked throughout the financial industry. He’s also the author of two great books: The Investor’s Paradox and The Geometry of Wealth. Brian’s perspective really resonated with me. He’s not afraid to bring insight from many different disciplines to his work. Brian believes that elements of a joyful life and the financial decisions we make are complementary. Taking both into account, people can find true wealth -- what he calls “funded contentment.” This more holistic approach is something I strive toward in my own financial life coaching. We discuss: —The future of the financial advising industry —What it means to afford a meaningful life —How generosity affects our own sense of wellbeing —The difference between getting rich and becoming wealthy To learn more about turning meaningful wealth into a meaningful life filled with passion and purpose, connect with me on social media at @jcchristianson or send me an email at john@highlandprivate.com Music: "Day Is Gonna Come" by Royal Deluxe

Empowering India’s Youth with Amitabh Shah

One common misconception around generosity is that you have to have abundant financial resources in order to affect change. But philanthropy can go beyond writing checks -- we all have time, talent, and experience we can contribute to make the world a better place. I met today’s guest, Amitabh Shah, in New York when I was speaking at the Harvard Club recently for my book tour. I was struck by his generous spirit and wanted to know more about what made him tick and the passion he has for impacting the world in significant ways. Amitabh completed his MBA at Yale and passed up a Wall Street offer in order to devote his time to helping others. He believes that young people have the power and determination it takes to make a positive impact. Amitabh himself was just 23 years old when he founded YUVA Unstoppable. YUVA, meaning “Youth,” mobilizes volunteers to help underprivileged children across India. One of the ways they do this is by providing necessities like water, bathrooms, and technology to some of India’s poorest public schools. All of these upgrades dramatically improve the lives of children and increase their access to education. You can visit yuvaunstoppable.org for more information about Amitabh’s work. During our conversation, we also get into: —The differences in generosity culture between India and the United States —How to give beyond writing checks —Where Amitabh’s big-hearted nature came from —The importance of gratitude To learn more about turning meaningful wealth into a meaningful life filled with passion and purpose, connect with me on social media at @jcchristianson or send me an email at john@jcchristianson.com Music: "Day Is Gonna Come" by Royal Deluxe
