As you may know, David bach is famous for his FinishRich books including Start Late, Finish Rich and Smart Women Finish Rich. One of my personal favorite books of David’s is The Automatic Millionaire. We talk about David a little bit actually in yesterday’s show with James Altucher when he is trying to convince me that 401(k)’s are thumbs down, no good and I took him to task, but mentioned David Bach’s input as well there. David is also an internationally renowned motivational and financial speaker. He’s a regularly featured financial expert in the media, you’ve seen him everywhere! He’s been on the Oprah Winfrey show six times. He’s been a regular contributor to The Today Show. I’ve been next to David many times on The Today Show, very privileged to say that I’ve had that opportunity.
A few takeaways from the episode:
- David’s go-giver philosophy.
- We go down memory lane with him and hear him share the financial lesson his grandmother taught him when he was a young boy…and it all happened at McDonald’s.
- And of course, I had to ask him about Oprah. And what it was like – after 10 years trying to get on her show – to finally meet Ms. Winfrey and be a featured guest on her show.
