Financial lessons can be found in many things and there are a lot of people, groups, and businesses who can be viewed as a source for inspiration.  Musicians, bands, and celebrities are a great example of this. To find long-term success, they need to employ a variety of skills and have an attitude that will ultimately end in financial rewards and personal happiness.


Today, I share 5 financial lessons we can learn from Maroon 5 and lead singer, Adam Levine. I explain why it’s important for entrepreneurs and investors to stay focused on their long-term goals, even in a volatile market. I share why you need to be adaptable and willing to try new things and the impact that showing gratitude, appreciating what you have, and giving back to your community can have on your financial success. I also explain why it’s important for entrepreneurs to align their passion with their values and how it impacts their ability to achieve financial fitness.

“When you align your passions and your values, and you’re able to make your best contributions, the money is going to follow.” - Tracey Bissett
