After earning an MBA from Wharton, Spencer Sherman discovered that the secret to creating success and joy with money and work is cultivating emotional intelligence and a resilient mind. He harnessed his 35-year meditation practice to transform fear and avoidance into wisdom and engagement and founded Abacus Wealth Partners, a sustainable financial advisory firm that has grown to manage over $4 billion in assets. Spencer is the author of The Cure for Money Madness and teaches in The Inner MBA program with New York University and Sounds True. He is a certified Search Inside Yourself mindfulness teacher (sourced at Google) and a regular guest teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
I hope to bring more awareness to the transformative power of Buddhist principles, including compassion, loving-kindness, sympathetic joy, and equanimity — with a particular focus on how these principles can help us be less stressed, happier, and wiser when it comes to money — ultimately building a more environmentally sustainable, and socially just world.
