Y’all know the expression put your money where your mouth is… but it’s time to put your money where your HEART is. *You ready?!*
My guest today is Stacy Lindsey, a multimedia journalist writer, media consultant, and speaker. She is the editorial director and cofounder of The Conscious Investor, a weekly digital magazine that uncovers the world of impact investing.
If you're not sure what impact investing is, don't worry. We dive deep into that throughout this episode.
But here’s a little jumping off point:
>>Impact investing is impacting capital with the purpose to do environmental or social good while also getting a financial return.<<
Psychologists have shown that the pursuit of meaning in one's life is the real key to happiness and health. Having a sense of purpose can literally add years to your life. It’s about acting with meaning in all aspects of your life… including investments and finances.
When you make any investment the goal is always to get your capital back or make more, but what if it could be more than that? What if you can see a measurable social, environmental return on top of that?
Money can be a taboo word but boo boo, money makes the world go round and it’s time to rethink where you invest it.
Let’s make an impact and leave a legacy with it.
If you want to feel inspired to put your money where your heart is then start listening >>HERE<<.
