On Money & Life

Our goal at Cypress Praxis, LLC is to facilitate new possibilities for individuals by freeing them from daily financial tasks, concerns and worries, so they can focus on their long term aspirations. We are interested in enabling our clients to have the freedom to be absolutely at ease with their financial circumstances, free from the fear of financial insecurity, and with the power to be effective in their financial actions and practices. We are not interested in mere insights or gains, but in lasting outcomes that expand and unfold over time in their financial lives. This will then influence their quality of life, relationships, personal productivity and ultimately the difference they make in life.

Historically we stored wealth in physical objects and used barter for trading. With the advent of commercial economy, metal coins and then paper money were "invented." Money is used as a tool for trade and a store of value. In our contemporary society more than 98% of the money in circulation is not even paper currency, but "electronic book entries" in agreed-upon data bases at financial institutions. So it has even a more intangible quality.

Along with its use and importance, money has been imbued with significance and meaning as well as emotional importance beyond its simple utility. Much of the meaning and emotional learning occurs early in our lives and shapes our adult experiences. Whether we are aware of it or not, our sense of self is more strongly influenced by early life conditioning, within our cultural paradigms, than most of us ever imagine.

At Cypress Asset Management we would like to have an "examined" relationship with finances and money. Money can be a powerful tool and resource for us rather than a master of our lives. We believe one cannot do this without discovering and facing the truth about our financial state of affairs as well as our underlying views and assumptions regarding money and wealth.

Once addressed properly, we then can focus on establishing practices that work, are sustainable, and contribute to our financial well being. These include appropriate saving as well as spending. We can then enjoy life and focus on what really matters.
We have respect for the wisdom captured over the ages as practical guides. While not immutable truths, they point to simple guideposts that have withstood the test of time.

"You get what you pay for."
"Live within your means."

"Don’t put all your eggs in one basket."
"If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't."
"The future will tell."
