Few people in the world can define and highlight, social paradigms so clearly as Krish Dhanam, your special guest on this show. Krish is entertaining as he brings a wealth a knowledge and understanding of multiple world views, into wonderful perspective so you can apply the lessons in real life.
You might be thinking: “Why are you talking anthropology on a Wealth podcast?” Because, Popularity ≠ Truth and the popular definition of truth as something relative, is a social issue of our time, with far-reaching reverberations; absolutely affecting your wealth and prosperity.
Creating wealth requires you to connect with people. When you connect with people it’s important to find common ground where you can agree upon certain absolute truths in order to work together effectively. When you understand different world views and how people are thinking, you’ll be able to make more quality connections. Some people do this instinctively. When you understand the process consciously, it is empowering and exciting.
Strife over money is the #1 reason couples bring up as they file for divorce in America. The amount of money involved doesn’t seem to be a significant issue, nor how money is saved or what is purchased, but rather how one spouse (or both) makes the other FEEL about money.
You see, blaming money is an easy way out. Communication around money is often the key problem, and this requires both spouses to take responsibility for at least part of the problem. Good News! A communication problem can likely be resolved so the differences you do have (and will have) about money will seem trivial in the end.
On this show you will hear ideas for communicating with your spouse about money matters. You’ll hear why you should NOT try to “change your spouse” or share everything “equally” and why the His/Her money option is not a good way to cope with a problem.
Even if you’re not married, the material in this show can help you become a better communicator and to get along better with more people.

Truth has been so distorted, and redefined in our world that it’s easy to wonder if there really is absolute “truth” anymore. Experts tell people to embrace a new world 🌎 where everything is “relative” to everything else - a world where Opinion trumps Fact and nothing is totally certain.
This is a corrupt idea with dangerous consequence for your prosperity and wellbeing. The issue is politically charged too with far-reaching effects into education, interpretation of history, nationality, and a redefinition of family and individual rights. These elements are ALL important if you want to realize full prosperity and financial wealth in your life.
The financial world is no exception: Average and Actual Rates of Return are confused and promoted along with a myriads of assumptions and sleight of hand reporting practices which lead to outright guessing and fabrication around most financial projections.
Remember to pause and think through information before choosing your position. This isn’t a simple feel-good choice, like which sports team will be your favorite - this is about your wealth, prosperity and the world you want your children and grandchildren to live in.
In the 1970’s DMSO was very popular with athletes🏃🏽♂️but you had to go to the vacuum store to get it. Where is DMSO today? What about other Fad remedies that come and go?
You can see a similar pattern in the Financial World too. Fads come and go, the Guarantees stick around through thick and thin. Some fads are harmless, but many times the smartest thing you do with a Fad is - avoid it. Just because “everybody is doing it” doesn’t mean that automatically becomes a good thing to do. Processionary caterpillars provide a great example on how this habit can be fatal.
When it comes to your money, don’t let an overnight fad burn out, taking your life savings along with it. Always make a point to look deeper than the superficial excitement around any proposition.
