Five Lever Friday | Vol.2

Bringing you inspiration, ideas, and tools to help you achieve Authentic Wealth

Authentic Wealth is bigger than just financial accumulation – it recognizes the interconnectedness of all aspects of life. It is created when your resources (the 5 levers – Finances, Mindset, Relationships, Health and Time) are aligned with your values, your vision and are ultimately used to achieve the impact you want to have on yourself, your family, your community and the world.

The Abaris 5 Lever Book Club just finished Greg McKeown’s book, Essentialism, which suggests that you can regain control over your time and energy when you embrace three core “truths”: “I choose to”, “Only a few things really matter”, and “I can do anything but not everything.”
