What Does Your Money Store?

I spend a lot of time listening to other podcasts. They range from business development and marketing, to Financial Technology, to personal development. The first one is for my consulting business. Interestingly thought, the latter two are becoming more closely related as I gain a fuller understanding how intimately tied to our lives money is. The primary functions of money are to act as a medium of exchange and as a store of value. This …

As We Move Toward A New Monetary System

This week I sent out a survey on the topic of Financial Technology. I wanted to get a feel for what people know about cryptocurrencies, micro-lending, new payment systems, etc. The response thus far has been interesting. In general, people sense that there are major changes afoot. However, the world of cyrptocurrencies is gaining so much press in the mainstream that it is crowding out interest in most other topics surrounding financial technology. While understanding …

What does that mean? Well, first of all we had better be clear on what money …

The last six months have been a grind. Spiritually, physically, mentally, professionally. All of it. A year ago I felt moved to throw out everything I knew about money and monetary systems and look at it strictly from a biblical/Kingdom perspective. Little did I know where it would lead me. First it led me to the Bible of course. Then to consider what I’ve learned over the last three years about financial technology. Oh yes, there’s …

Money Shapes Our Culture in More Ways Than You Can Imagine

Money is the primary subject of what I will write and speak about going forward. Why? There are a host of reasons, not the least of which is that I’ve studied it for over 15 years. A major discovery during that time is that what the world perceives money is and what it should accomplish are grossly distorted. Case in point.

It’s been an interesting few weeks. A friend of mine, Uli Kortsch (you will hear more about him as time goes on), spent the first part of December in Europe. There, he met a gentlemen from Israel named Arie who just so happens to be very good friends with the author that has greatly influenced my thinking about what money can and should be – Bernard Lietaer.  The next thing I know, I’m having a Skype call with …
