103 - How to Have a Healthier Relationship With Money, with Dr. Omar Fisher
In this episode, we sat down with Author and serial entrepreneur, Dr. Omar Fisher. He is a recognized pioneer in Islamic finance and Co-Founder of 9 start-up companies. He has published books, e-books, and articles on seeking knowledge and consciousness during his quest for helping others achieve financial freedom.
I had a very insightful discussion with Dr. Omar where he shared how he learned to appreciate Islamic finance, which inspired him to help people explore funding alternatives other than debt.
He also gave a thorough explanation of risk-sharing and how the influence of the community creates mutually beneficial relationships among its members compared to the risk-transfer model that tends to benefit only the creditors.
