Money is a byproduct of making a positive impact

As it currently stands, I am the sole breadwinner of our house. We have made a conscious decision not to have my wife work so that she can figure out what she wants to do. Fortunately, we are in a position where we are able to do this. If we were in New Zealand, I don't think we'd be able to do this, or at least we wouldn't be able to do it so easily because of the high cost of living.

Anyway, we don't want my wife to just do any ordinary job. I'd rather she not work that work somewhere for the sake of making money.

Obviously it would be better financially if she were working, and a few people have kindly told me this too. But there is more to life than making money, and I don't believe in making money for the sake of making money. I'd rather be doing something that I knew was making a positive impact. Money is just a byproduct of making a positive impact.

My aim is to make a positive impact (huh, I just had a typo that said Timpact, I could roll with this). Making a positive impact has more of a positive impact on the world than making money. My wife and I both want my wife to focus on making a positive impact, not making money. That's why she isn't working at the moment, and I feel fortunate that we are in a position where we can do this.
