What Students Say
“A game changer”
I particularly love the money personality types that Ken Honda describes in the Happy Money book. Everyone can identify with a personality type, that they didn’t even know about themselves around money, and I think that is a game changer.

“Thank goodness that Ken took what is obviously working in every possible way and put it into a book.”
Ken is living happiness moment to moment. I’ve known him through all kinds of circumstances. Ken has the heart of a child, but in the best possible way. He’s joyous. I’ve seen him with his daughter, Hannah, and I’ve seen the way he’s a parent. I’ve seen his generosity. [...]
When I spend time with Ken, I feel like I want what he has because he’s happy. Life is clearly working for him, everything’s in an overflow of goodness. Thank goodness that Ken took what is obviously working in every possible way and put it into a book. [...]

“There are enough [the] principles and practices in the [Ken’s] book that can have you shift your mindset”
There are enough [the] principles and practices in the [Ken’s] book that can have you shift your mindset, shift your identity around money and begin to have money emerge in your life because that’s the flow.
So I would say the book provides a set of practices. It provides the language of money, a language of money that can allow you to have more in your life. It also is a way of being, the ways that you can be around money, around your attitudes, your beliefs, your assumptions about money that can give you a greater freedom.

“Happy money is one of the ways to start breaking up this belief that money is evil, money is bad and there’s not enough of it.”
Happy money is one of the ways to start breaking up this belief that money is evil, money is bad and there’s not enough of it. [...]
I think it’s a real shift and a paradigm and I think it could be a game changer.
If you start with young children saying that money is a happy thing and teach children that when you give it it’s happy and when you receive it it’s happy. Then, it’s just something. It’s not this horrible thing. It’s an inanimate object. It’s actually just energy.

“Speaks directly to the nature of the energy dynamic of money.”
The book Happy Money I actually think is going and is a must read for this reason. It speaks directly to the nature of the energy dynamic of money. Ken has got this phrase arigato in, arigato out, and it has to do with gratitude. [...]
“It really transforms everything you think about money and therefore your life”
This is about money as an energy flow and when you give freely of your energy, i.e. freely of your money, then it comes back to you 100 fold. And so I think what it has there that’s so amazing is some really important home truths about how you handle money and what you think about with money. And it really transforms everything you think about money and therefore your life.

“It’s a really great reminder of those lessons of how we view money, and how we can elevate our consciousness to money.”
I love when Ken really talks about how you value money, and getting clear and intentional about what that value looks like for you. [...]
His book made me smile. Not just because it’s named Happy Money, but because it’s a really great reminder of those lessons of how we view money, and how we can elevate our consciousness to money. And expand that thought process around the world. It’s a pretty powerful concept.

“What Ken has done is he simplified the way of understanding our relationship with money”
What Ken has done is he simplified the way of understanding our relationship to money is not about getting it is about giving. And the way in which he described it and the way in which he described the book and what’s in the book. [...]
“He [Ken] wants to have everyone have a happy relationship with money and have money come to them”
I love hearing Ken Honda speak. He is a force of nature, and he’s fun and he’s loving and he’s acknowledging and he’s so committed to making a difference in the world, and I could see where he wants to have everyone have a happy relationship with money and have money come to them. He really wants to make a difference with people, and, for me, that’s what my life is about, that’s what I’ve always been about, bringing transformation to business and making a difference for people, and that’s what he’s about, and it’s very, very inspiring to be with him, to see it.
“This is a man writing about finances and money who has a very deep caring heart.”
When you pick up Ken’s book, a really important thing to know is that this is a man writing about finances and money who has a very deep caring heart. We’ve been so impressed to see Ken’s heart and I know that you’ll see that when you read his book. [...]
“The details of what he teaches are brilliant”
When I met Ken, I knew that this was a most generous and humble individual. [...] The details of what he teaches are brilliant. What I love most about him is his authenticity in his reality that he is living from the place that everyone needs to find.
“Bringing back that idea of happy money, he’s making the world happy.”
The simple concepts, the simple truths he was giving to all, and we were amazed. The way he delivers this simple but very deep truth, reminding us of this right that we have to be happy and have a happy relationship towards money. I was surprised at this man, who is incredibly successful, but incredibly humble, and bringing back that idea of happy money, he’s making the world happy.
“He is talking about money, something that is supposed to be superficial, in a very profound, almost spiritual way”
What surprises me the most about Ken and what is revolutionary to me is that he is talking about money, something that is supposed to be superficial, in a very profound, almost spiritual way. He’s making money spiritual, and I think that’s very, very revolutionary.
“What Ken does is he helps you to get into the state of being wealthy”
Happy Money helps you see money in a different way. We all have this way of looking at money as that we need to accumulate it. We need to get it, we need to have it. We can’t be happy without it. It’s like the be, do, have paradigm. When you be money with the way that you think, the thoughts, your actions, what happens is that you start to do things in alignment with that wealth. Then you have the wealth that you want. What Ken does is he helps you to get into the state of being wealthy, which actually doesn’t take money to create.
“Ken has developed an enormous wisdom in the differentiation between happy money and, let’s say, unhappy money”
Ken has developed an enormous wisdom in the differentiation between happy money and, let’s say, unhappy money or sad money. He has some amazing insights into what people do which produces lousy results and what people do that produces great results. [...]
“That is the movement of happy money that I’m so excited to be a part of.”
What I appreciate so much about Happy Money is, it’s a total flip of the way that we so often think about money. There’s such a scarcity mentality, and it’s so easy to get wrapped up in a sense of fear or insufficiency. The mindset that it’s never enough. But Ken’s whole way of looking at money can shift our relationship with it to one of flow and changing the whole dynamic. [...]
That is the movement of happy money that I’m so excited to be a part of.
