Ever wonder what financial mistakes your favorite financial gurus have made? Seven time New York Times bestselling author David Bach joins us (Automatic Millionaire, Smart Women Finish Rich) and shares his financial horror stories about credit cards and early life money problems. Plus, he’ll tell true stories about borrowing money from his children, asking his dad for money help, and more!
In our headlines segment, we discuss the recently deceased lead singer of Linkin Park’s will. What should you include in your will? David Bach will help Joe & OG with the answer. We’ll also tackle a headline about sharing. When is it okay to share your salary with others? Not surprisingly, your age seems to be a factor in your answer to that question.
