12-Steps to Financial Literacy
“The most important thing for a young man is to establish credit-a reputation, character.” I first read those words from John D. Rockefeller in 1985 in the Thoughts On The Business Of Life section in Forbes Magazine. I had just accepted my first role with New York Life, and wanted badly to learned the ropes of business from perspective of those who defined it. So, I drowned myself in biographies and Rockefeller’s was one that challenged me to look for opportunity in unpaved roads, to believe in the sacredness of a promise, and to never be afraid of giving up the good for the great.
That same verse echoed again today when I spoke with Nicole Lapin, because other than adding a ‘W and an O’ in front of the word ‘man’, she’s made her way in a man’s world and has stood tall each step of the way. By now, you know about her rise at CNN and CNBC — still, it was her moxie to launch her own production company in 2011, Nothing But Gold Production, that has given her a license to reshape the very industry that helped shaped her identity growing up. Her commitment to empower a generation of aspiring women is captured in her first book, Rich Bitch, where she distills a decade worth of Wall Street wisdom into a A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together… Finally. Here are a few of the topic we address:
