Can Money Really Buy Happiness? [4:23]
Technically yes, money can buy happiness but Kiné says, “There is a dollar sign associated with almost everything we want or need. It’s the knowing what will actually make us happy that is the hard part.” Getting some financial therapy can be a great way to drill down to figure out what happiness means to you and then help you to go out and grab prosperity.
