It is an old cliche that is proving to be untrue. But the trick to money buying happiness may not lie in how much money we have, but in how and when we spend it. This week Brett is joined by Michael Norton, a Harvard business school professor and author of HAPPY MONEY, which explains how money can buy happiness. In the book, Mr. Norton and his co-author, Elizabeth Dunn, outline 5 principles which help you know when and how to spend your money to increase your overall happiness. Following the interview with Mr. Norton, Brett will speak with New York money coach Carrie Birgbauer and discuss how she helps someone transform from existing paycheck to paycheck into someone financially empowered, and discuss the new personal financial management tools that can aid the process.
