Learn About Doug’s Journey

From Monk To Money Manager

From Monk to Money Manager

Doug Lynam served as a Benedictine monk for 20 years before entering the world of finance. He’s been featured in numerous media outlets, including the New York Times, Kiplinger’s, CNBC and The Chicago Tribune. He is the author of From Monk to Money Manager: A Former Monk’s Financial Guide to Becoming a Little Bit Wealthy - And Why That’s Okay.

In his book, Doug  shares the rules of money management that will change your approach to earning, saving, and investing.

From Monk to Money Manager is an entertaining journey through Doug's relationship with the almighty dollar—his childhood in a rich family, the long-haired hippie days running away from materialism, time in the Marine Corps looking for selfless service, and his twenty years in the monastery under a vow of poverty where he began helping alleviate others’ financial burdens. This all led to his current profession as a financial advisor.

In this unique look at wealth, Doug shares his belief that spirituality doesn’t require poverty. The truth is, we need financial peace so we can help others. When money becomes a part of our spiritual practice, used in love and service, it can bring us closer to our highest ideals.

He also provides clear, step-by-step guidance on how to grow “a little bit wealthy.”
