Personal Wealth: (an interview with Personal Chief Financial Officer and Coach, Rich Krasney)

For some, insight comes from overcoming a tragedy, or some other monumental life event that causes them to see life differently than they had before. For Rich Krasney, it came from reading a book.

About a year ago, this Personal Chief Financial Officer and Coach for a select group of business owners and entrepreneurs read Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”, and experienced an “Aha” moment, seeing his life purpose clearly for the first time. 

He realized that money is simply a means to an end, and as a result he now delivers his message of “How Money Can Buy Happiness: Balancing Life and Wealth” to audiences (including the Napoleon Hill Foundation, itself). Additionally, Rich is currently in the midst of developing “A Work in Progress”, a documentary exploring how one person can make a difference, and the creation of a new charity.

Dial in to the E-Factor on Tuesday, March 18th to hear why Rich now sees inspirational messages everywhere, and how in being of earnest service to others, you best serve yourself.

Oprah’s “The Big Give” Reality Show: What Do YOU Think?

Oprah’s Big Give

So what did you think of the premiere of “The Big Give”? Personally, I think it’s a breath of fresh air to see a television show that has a mission of actually helping people. For those of you who missed the show, 10 contestants (I think it’s 10…) battle each other to be crowned “The Biggest Giver (ala The Biggest Loser show?) and the winner will win $1 Million dollars. In the first episode, contestants were partnered and broken into five teams. Each team was presented with worthy cause and challenged to raise as much money and make as big a difference for their cause as possible. At the end of the show, the person who is judged to have made the least difference is sent home packing. The show was sort of a cross between The Apprentice and The Biggest Loser. I’m already a fan and am looking forward to the next episode.

What’s the moral?

While this was just the first episode, I hope the show will deliver more than just inspirational and heartwarming stories to viewers. I was quite disappointed to see that the first one voted off the show was treated like one of Donald Trump’s contestants with a “You’re Fired” type sendoff. The show should tread carefully on this precarious ground or risk doing the opposite of what the show intends to do, inspire giving. One might perceive that only certain types of people are tallented at giving and that it should be left to charities or the “good givers”. In reality, everyone has the ability to make a difference and we should applaud all efforts when people step forward to help another person. Other people have mentioned that people are only giving so that they can win the $1 Million prize. I’m not sure I would make such a leap, however I would say that the biggest givers are those who don’t expect anything in return. If the show is able to demonstrate this, it has the potential to not only entertain, but also inspire good in the world.

What do you think?
