Dana Sharp may have hit the parent jackpot. Her father was frugal before it was fashionable. He began his career as a Chicago Public School gym teacher and worked over his lifetime to amass a considerable fortune that his great grandchildren still benefit from to this day. Dana's father valued character building, saving, and education which makes him our real life example of the people profiled in Thomas J. Stanley's groundbreaking research on high net worth people in this country in The Millionaire Next Door.
Dana shares the lessons from her father that she employs and now passes to her children and grandchildren. This was such a powerful episode, full of wonderful pearls of wisdom that anyone - parent jackpot winners or otherwise - can apply.
We can all build a solid financial foundation and pass on the traits that create millionaires next door.
