You Only Live Once  redefines the millennial mantra into a practice of mindful financial decision-making to engineer one’s dream lifestyle. There are numerous books, seminars and apps created to address the issue of financial illiteracy but none highlights the fundamental reason why financial knowledge is important. It’s important to address the inner motivations and habits that are preventing many from living their dreams.

YOLO Book Jason Vitug

YOU MAY THINK MORE MONEY is the key to living the life of your dreams, but in reality, most people are unable to live the lives they want because they lack a clear vision for their life and are setting financial goals that do not align with what they truly value. If you want to rediscover your passions and define your purpose, You Only Live Once is your complete guide to understanding your money mindset and teaching you to manage money with a purpose—to live your dream lifestyle in this lifetime.

In seven years, author Jason Vitug went from cleaning toilets and serving drinks to making decisions in a Silicon Valley boardroom. He had a walk-in closet as big as the room he and his brothers once shared, but he found himself living paycheck to paycheck. Through his personal story of how he redefined the way he sees money to live a more fulfilling life, he shares memorable lessons learned to motivate you to create a lifestyle budget, save purposefully, spend consciously, and rethink retirement.
