You Only Live Once: The Roadmap to Financial Wellness and a Purposeful Life

Money isn’t a goal—it’s a resource you need to live the life you see for yourself, and You Only Live Once shows you how to efficiently use your wealth to create and sustain the lifestyle you want.

What you’ll find inside?

YOU MAY THINK MORE MONEY is the key to living the life of your dreams, but in reality, most people are unable to live the lives they want because they lack a clear vision for their life and are setting financial goals that do not align with what they truly value.

If you want to rediscover your passions and define your purpose, You Only Live Once is your complete guide to understanding your money mindset and teaching you to manage money with a purpose—to live your dream lifestyle in this lifetime.

In seven years, author Jason Vitug went from cleaning toilets and serving drinks to making decisions in a Silicon Valley boardroom. He had a walk-in closet as big as the room he and his brothers once shared, but he found himself living paycheck to paycheck. Through his personal story of how he redefined the way he sees money to live a more fulfilling life, he shares memorable lessons learned to motivate you to create a lifestyle budget, save purposefully, spend consciously, and rethink retirement.

Addressing issues on a much deeper level than nuts-and-bolts financial plans, this revolutionary guidebook sheds light on the behaviors and spending habits that shape a person’s money mindset. By enhancing your approach to money, you can avoid the irrational financial decision making undermining your rational goals. You can make actual progress your very first day with:

  • A step-by-step process for assessing your spending habits and how to improve them to benefit from the power of time
  • Focused exercises enabling you to identify your unique financial goals and create a customized savings strategy to turn your vision for your life into reality
  • A concrete framework for clarifying the values shaping your life, increasing your income, and spending money with the purpose of materializing your dreams

My YOLO Philosophy

I live with the motto You Only Live Once, which recognizes time as our most valuable resource. It’s finite. It’s unique to us. When it’s gone, it’s gone.

Understanding your time as the most valuable resource, you make better decisions – on work, food, health, relationships, and finances – to live a good life.

It’s mindfully creating a lifetime of joy and satisfaction.
