Next Gen Personal Finance


Mar 26, 2016

Thanks to Eric Tyson for recently joining me on the NGPF podcast. Eric has brought personal finance advice to millions through his work as a financial advisor, syndicated columnist and author of Personal Finance for Dummies (and other titles in the Dummies series. Eric provides insights to the following questions during our conversation: . How did his earlier experience as a management consultant to financial service firms inform his personal finance writing? . How does he think personal finance should be taught in high school? . How much weight should be given to advice provided by "financial gurus?" . How should people think about "wealth" beyond just the size of one's bank account? . What are the most common personal finance traps or mistakes has he seen people make consistently over the years?
