I recently had the pleasure of interviewing David Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber and The Wealthy Barber Returns. I first met David at a media preview at Indigo and he struck me as smart without taking himself too seriously. Plus, the man knows how to help us save our money. I’m all for that. For a man with boundless energy, vim and vigor, it’s interesting to note that he’s NEVER had a sip of coffee or wine. I know, amazing right?
Besides family or work, what are you most passionate about?
My hockey pool and the Detroit Tigers.
If you had your personal motto printed on a t-shirt, what would it say?
What is one piece of helpful advice you can give to parents?

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’d be younger. Much.
Tell us about one of your hidden talents.

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m a loner.
Describe the perfect day.
