91 - Robert Brown
Robert Brown wants you to not be afraid of a little hard work.
Robert grew up on a dairy farm. His father worked the farm while also working a full-time job at General Motors.
Robert learned about working for money early and also about patience and delayed gratification.
There are a lot of things that we buy today with borrowed money that we could easily put off until we have money in the bank, and we might even get a better deal if we wait.
Robert realized over time that many Canadians hadn’t learned what he did on the farm and as a result they were spending money before they earned it, and doing things like buying houses they actually couldn’t afford. They didn’t understand the concept of compound interest or how to save for the future while still being able to live a comfortable life today.
After over 25 years of working in the restaurant and food service industries, Robert decided to write a book about personal finance. He would write it in a way that Canadians would understand.
The book he wrote is called Wealthing Like Rabbits and it’s now a Canadian bestseller.
Robert joined me from Ajax, Ontario to share his personal finance story.
