Story Behind the Book
“It was the summer of 1995, just months after our first daughter was born. I sat in a well-known financial expert’s office because my husband and I desperately needed financial guidance. At the time, I worked as a reporter for an NBC affiliated station and asking questions was part of my job. It’s funny that it didn’t bother me to ask them on TV, but sitting in this expert’s office, I suddenly froze. He claimed this ‘investing’ stuff was really complicated and he’d take care of our savings. Over the next few months, we watched thousands of dollars disappear in a series of trades and commissions (making him richer) and margin calls (making us poorer). So much for the ‘expert!’ After that, I realized that there are no dumb questions about money. Being humble enough to admit that you don’t know everything is the beginning of wealth.” —Carolyn Castleberry
