About the Author:
Louis Böhtlingk, a visionary, counselor and creator of the “Meeting the Mystery of Money” workshop offers a different vision on how to run our financial lives and businesses with his book Dare to Care. Böhtlingk has developed a collection of ideas and initiatives to change finance from a money-first to a care-first attitude. He showcases fascinating examples, such as the story of an American kindergarten kid Ryan Hreljac, who raised money for a drinking well for children in Uganda and the business of Guayaki Yerba Mate that works with yerba mate farmers in South America creating living wage jobs and restoring the South American rainforest. He describes the success of European ethical banking pioneer, Triodos Bank and shows the impressive trends in socially responsible investing which now surpasses $3 trillion out of $25 trillion totally invested in the U.S. In all those and many more examples, Böhtlingk shows that by replacing fear with care and love as the main driver behind our approach to money, this can maximize our well-being and the common good, and change our economic system.
