Wealthwoke's Elian Wiener believes that wealth is about more than money and material possessions.
He acknowledges that the definition of wealth is different for everyone, depending on one's life journey.
Being a super competitive person, Wiener describes how he was always chasing money until it dawned on him that money forms only one dimension of wealth.
He became tired of the rat race, had to take a step back and realised what true financial wealth is.
He is now sharing that knowledge.
The accumulation of money cannot be the goal in and of itself. There are several dimensions to wealth. There is physical wealth, spiritual, relationship and community.— Elian Wiener, Wealthwoke
I was doing great in one pillar but completely failing at the others. Spiritually, I was completely lost and in relationships too.— Elian Weiner, Wealthwoke
In his quest to realise his true wealth, Wiener sold one of the country’s largest Public Relations agencies.
The reason why I sold it was that I realised I can't carry on like this anymore. It gave me some space to reassess my life and I thought I need to explore these other pillars of wealth.— Elian Wiener, Wealthwoke
Wealthwoke, which is a blog I created, is really my journey when I go along and experience these other dimensions of wealth.— Elian Wiener, Wealthwoke
Wiener shares his knowledge based on four pillars - finance, health, spirituality and relationships.
