Are you making a living? Or as Joe Dominguez puts it, are you making a dying? Dominguez was a Wall Street analyst who walked away from a high-powered financial career in 1969, retiring at age 30. Afterward he lived comfortably on about $7,000 per year, while donating a small fortune to various charities.

Transforming Your Relationship with Money is his life's work--a revolutionary guide that will help you find peace with the concept of money, stop consuming things you don't really need, and start contributing to the goals and ideals you believe in.

Joe Dominguez achieved financial independence not through a get-rich-quick scheme, but through a path of inquiry that led him to question the very nature of our relationship with money. Here he illuminates the equation between money and our most precious resource--our life energy--so that a powerful new definition of money emerges. In nine simple steps he teaches you how to consciously track, evaluate, and direct the flow of money--without compromising your principles or most cherished dreams.

"The foolish person wants more money, and more of the things money can buy," Dominguez says. "The wise person wants enough money, and more of the things money can't buy: health, happiness, love, and peace of mind."

Now the personal money management course that brings this wisdom to consciousness is open to every listener, with Transforming Your Relationship with Money.

Author Notes

Joe Dominguez was born on February 2, 1938. Considered a pioneer in the sustainability movement, he, together with partner Vicki Robin, co-authored the best-seller Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence. Dominguez was 31 years of age when he retired from a job as a technical stock analyst on Wall Street with a nest egg of about $70,000. He continued to live off of the investment income, about $6,000 a year, with a strong desire to tell others how to do the same. The proceeds of his book sales and other efforts to increase financial literacy have been donated to the New Road Map Foundation, an all-volunteer, non-profit foundation founded to promote the reduction of North American consumption.

Dominguez died of cancer in Seattle on January 11, 1997.
