Musings of a Wayward Philosopher endeavors to blend free market economics with sound personal finance and personal wellness principles to illustrate a particular outlook on life that enabled the author to reduce clutter and insecurities while embracing the finer things life has to offer. This collection of essays places a heavy emphasis on the merits of private capital, asset allocation, entrepreneurship, and mindfulness with an emphasis on self-empowerment.

You will find this text to be direct, uncensored, and brutally honest, often flying in the face of accepted conventional wisdom with the perspective presented.
