From the Institute on Holistic Wealth: Founded by Keisha Blair, international best-selling author of Holistic Wealth, Global Holistic Wealth Day is a celebration of a life well lived that takes place annually on April 9th. Global Holistic Wealth Day is a time to reflect on what it means to be truly ‘wealthy’ and how we can embody the transformational power of living with purpose, collecting experiences, engaging in meaningful work, cultivating your health and well-being, and creating emotional and spiritual connections with others, all while continuously working to build financial stability.
Keisha Blair created the Holistic Wealth movement and her life’s mission is ensuring everyone around the globe hears this message. April 9th is now commemorated as Global Holistic Wealth Day.
