We all ask ourselves these questions, but the pressures of business and daily life seem to always keep us from finding sure answers. After years of living that way himself, wealthy entrepreneur Frank Hanna resolved simply to seize the time necessary to get good answers. Confident that these questions could be answered with as much certainty as questions of business strategy, Hanna directly tackled the problem of wealth and its obligations, and did so with the same rigor that he approaches business deals. He resolved to figure out—once and for all—just what it means for us to have money, and what we should be doing with it.
Expecting to have to solve these problems himself, Hanna found that these questions have been considered by wise folks and wealthy people for centuries, with answers that are as applicable today as they were in the time of Plato and Socrates.
From this rich tradition, from his own experience, and from his friendships with some of the wealthiest people around, Hanna has drawn forth clear, simple criteria you can use to determine how much money is enough for you, now and in the future. He’s developed simple rules of thumb you can use to judge whether you’re using your money as you ought—rules that empower you to respond as carefully and as confidently to your wealth, to its demands, and to your charitable obligations as you do to other challenges in your life.
Frank J. Hanna has started and invested in many businesses, and is featured in the PBS special The Call of the Entrepreneur. He is the CEO of Hanna Capital, the recipient of the William B. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership and the David R. Jones Award for Philanthropy, and cofounder of the Solidarity Foundation. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife and daughter.
