Japan’s Most Influential Money Teacher
Ken Honda is Japan’s most recognizable and influential money teacher. Fondly known as the “Zen Millionaire” in his home country and known to some as the Marie Kondo of personal finance, Ken has penned 58 books, which have sold millions of copies and been translated into 15 languages.
Ken spent most of his early life committed to understanding humanity’s relationship with money and how to leverage it to create a life of prosperity, peace, and happiness. By 29, he had built multiple successful businesses and achieved financial freedom.
Next, he began studying over 12,000 self-made millionaires in Japan while being mentored by the late Wahei Takeda (the “Warren Buffett of Japan”).
Ken’s life experiences helped him understand the connecting thread between almost all of the world’s richest, happiest, and most fulfilled people: building sustainable wealth was less about Money IQ (business and investment strategies) and more about Money EQ (our emotional intelligence surrounding money).
Ken shares this revelation and how anyone can raise their Money EQ through high-end coaching and events around the world. And now, through the Money EQ Program, he hopes to spread the truth about money to even more people and empower them with a lifetime of abundance and prosperity.
