Today’s guest is J L “Jim” Collins, a prolific financial blogger who began writing more or less in retirement. In 2011 he wrote a series of letters to his daughter about money and investing so she could learn what worked and even from his mistakes. In the process, he created a gateway to financial independence for her. At the suggestion of a colleague, he created a blog where he posted the letters so they could also benefit his other family and friends. The blog is at JLCollinsNH.com.

Fast forward to today, the blog has become a go-to for people around the world seeking financial wisdom. And he has a new book out called The Simple Path to Wealth. James has taken the ideas and concepts and crafted them into a roadmap for readers.

In the interview we discuss his top investment pick of all time. Plus, those letters he wrote to his daughter about money like how did she react and where is she today?

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful resource Farnoosh! I was not familiar with this blog and have been checking into some of the stories he has written to his daughter. Finding a voice like this to share with my students in certain areas like investing will help generate more interest on topics that can be a little dry or intimidating.

  • Great episode! And what voice (literally) this man has! I was sad when it was over 😉 Great wisdom here and checking out the blog now!
