The Wealthing® Principles

Focus on the Whole
We win more by collaborating than by competing. Nobody has to lose for you to win.
Create Wealth

We can't create wealth without sharing it.  It is a much more powerful approach that capturing wealth.
Take Action

We are more our attitude than our results. Learn from actions, not from success or failure. 


We progress when we are better than ourselves, not anybody else. Focus on the flow of becoming, not the stay of being.
Bet on Passion

We find meaning when we leverage on what we are passionate about, not on what we are good at. That keeps us growing.
Make Meaning

We don't have to compromise on making money to create meaning. Money is part of the reason but not the whole reason. Discover what makes meaning.
