Affluence Intelligence can show you how to harness your innate power to live a richer life. It's easy to assume that if we only had more money we'd be happier. But there's more to the story--after all, why then are some high net worth people miserable? After decades of working with clients of all psychologists Stephen Goldbart and Joan DiFuria have identified the hidden factors behind why some people are able to attract and enjoy "the good life" while others, despite advantages, can't seem to get ahead. They reveal the concept of affluence intelligence, a mindset that makes people not only wealthier, but also deeply fulfilled.

Praise For Affluence Intelligence: Earn More, Worry Less, and Live a Happy and Balanced Life

Curled Up with a Good Book
Affluence Intelligence lays out a three-month plan that leads to achievement of lofty goals, recognizing and living priorities, and enjoying a greater sense of possibility…Goldbart and Difuria have turned what sometimes seems an insurmountable obstacle into an enjoyable adventure. Affluence Intelligence helps readers get a grip on the worry and anxiety and transform fear into power. The program outlined here is concrete and perhaps revolutionary, with the potential to redirect an ages-old but dead-end paradigm into a satisfying and productive road trip to a worthy and fulfilling destination.”
