The money/happiness link with finance expert and business owner Cameron Waldron.
Let me start by saying I met Cameron at a business networking event. He’s a financial advisor,💵 owner of Northampton-based, New England Financial Services and, (sorry Cameron), but he was the absolute last bloke in a busy room of local business owners that I thought I’d connect with. I guess, there were no used car salesmen around that day. At least I don’t think there were…just kidding…but you get my drift.
And, oh, how lovely to be proved so, so wrong.
You see, Cameron isn’t like any finance guy that I’ve ever met (granted I’ve not met so many, but this is why I think so).
Cameron is a financial advisor who inspires his clients to find happiness before wealth. 👏 I know!!?
Don’t believe me? Check out his posts on Linked In… they’re great. One asks me if I’ve had my mushrooms, today he’s posting about National Fitness Day and how he loves to walk his dog 🐕. Every Monday he’s promoting mindfulness through his Mindful Monday posts and you’ll find him starting conversations on everything from music, to art, philosophy and observing habits. He is truly what I call a ‘Yogi-in-Business’, so I had to get him on this podcast obviously and find out more…
Whatever your financial picture, 💰you need to listen to this episode.
