Once again here's Christopher dance -- Welcome back off and we're having a great conversation -- and exuded. A contributor to Forbes dot com. And has written books on millennial holes and investing in personal finance. Before I forget let me remind you that you could find it on FaceBook where you can. And Twitter by searching work point with a -- we few here and you bear bait you send your questions will be happy to read my air war was just telling it how I after the close enough -- -- she decided to write about topic particularly well. Basically. I experienced a lot of things with personal finance myself and it is intermediate stop -- -- the economy and -- Having gone through this yourself who are anxious to.

Been covering -- says it's great to me like maybe sorry if you. You know even now when I'm recording history and learn these things so I wouldn't yet I wouldn't think I'm an expert -- Yeah obviously I know where what architecture and she and I have question. Well -- -- I've often said that the -- that would really learn about what I know about estate planning from dateline lawyers who are sitting in on meetings and hear them council client has been a fly on the wall how the regularly get grilled by reporters and you got that. Tough question do you really hear your BS detectors darn good and you can talk to a lot of really Smart people I can imagine that you would accumulate a lot of hours doing what you do. Yeah I think in the point here I think when I was -- -- -- -- originally talked to -- about you know he's talking about -- holes and and you know the conversation came -- this -- -- -- subject her -- her clients I think it is because we yes there's this whole new generation of folks that are coming in and creating wealth -- -- Trying to not make mistakes that innocent people make -- but at same token. Her parents but a lot of money who wanna know how to pass -- money on an income of what they can teach. Their kids and I think a lot of things you're talking about -- like kind of money principals spend less in the -- an investor as early as you can and -- more I mean I don't know how more clear and concise you can hit well. Integrity of our last week yeah a local. Sort of a commentator writer blogger and he -- what he was told them what all the news of course Laura when I started doing that and early nineties.

Helping them to learn these concepts. Although I ignore quite -- -- at my dad started he commuted. Two he's he's a boomer who's in his seventies and so you know as I look at these fundamental principles they certainly are the kind of thing you need to do -- that good foundation and ultimately become well I think. What really demystify well -- that monkey local. Wealthy people are and where you're sports stars and those people -- on TV movie well he. These people are people who have practiced these basic principle that you're writing about and you know affected you. Because you can -- schoolteacher or -- writer or firemen or a lot of different kinds of people different kind of jobs and really accumulated can't -- I think a lot of wealth and security if it's like you said you spent less that you learn you invested early and you can't and you earn as much -- You know how many ever get the twenties and early thirties in terms to do to indicate vacant lot cracked actor actor -- pretty hard to get turnaround if you don't pay attention these fundamental issue and I think -- browser and go. I was looking at that thing you -- I was so we wish that there were more education in schools for children. On these topics I kind of wish that that we can take yearbook and a have a video series that -- -- -- that would that we can keep our high schoolers and our junior -- you know these principles that they would change their blocks well according to stop them. When I chose that topic friends are great -- and topics and I try to blame -- I thought I I think the creatures that -- That's where all the things I wish I had done and I -- actually. -- in which is why they might Craig let me -- speculation -- amnesty that would -- actress committing acts. I don't. There's one thing I want it says. You know trying and here -- that you know in the title -- looking planned a career and money secret to succeed in today's world and that different -- -- -- and making it should will be ignored the plea from me like him he's kind of more interest hidden writings and like thinking how much money and making all day or more creative Hastert to anybody here.
