Chris Butsch – author “The Millennial’s Guide to Happiness.”

Like many others I found happiness early in life by giving up my pursuit of financial wealth. But unlike others, I didn’t stop at finding one or two things which made my life fulfilling and joyful again; I wanted to holistically understand happiness and pass along what I’d learned, so no one else in my generation would fall into the same pitfalls as I did three years ago.

After graduating from Vanderbilt University a semester early, I eagerly dove headfirst into “adult world” by accepting a lucrative job with Epic Health Systems as a project manager. Two and a half years later I’d achieved many of our society’s traditional benchmarks of success: fast car? Check. Impressive apartment? Check. Financial freedom to travel, eat, and drink whatever I wanted? Check, check check.

So it may come as a surprise that in June of 2014 I was diagnosed with clinical depression. Clearly I      was doing something wrong.

The Millennial’s Guide to Making Happiness

My bow-tied psychiatrist prescribed me Wellbutrin and wished me luck. But when I noticed that our country’s penchant for pharmaceuticals has done nothing to reverse our slipping happiness levels, I decided to begin exploring natural ways to mend my happiness. I began obsessively researching ways to be happy and taking actions in my own life; I maintained a rigorous exercise regimen, learned how to cook, and surrounded myself with the friends and family I’d alienated on my quest for a bigger paycheck.

Robroy, Investor Coach also known as, ‘Defeater of Money Demons’ in some social circles, knows that success is achieved not by default but by design.

That money should be seen as a tool to help us achieve our goals and dreams. That old expression, ” Money can’t buy happiness” rings true even today. Robroy’s own family legacy has had to reset how they think about money and wealth.
A family, whose history of money and wealth dates back to the Gilded Age. Where past generations squandered and nurtured the wealth legacy that had been entrusted to them. Robroy was exposed to the good and bad sides of wealth.
