It’s time to celebrate fathers, and the lessons they teach us. Here are three money lessons from some famous dads.
- Ariana Rockefeller says, “We have a family tradition that started with my great-great-grandfather, John D. Rockefeller Sr., who wrote down everything he spent in a ledger.”
- Al Roker, USA Today Anchor, says, “The financial advice I got from my dad was to make sure to hand it to someone who knows what they’re doing.”
- Actor Rob Riggle says his dad taught him two things: “One was to do your best to avoid debt (and save) whenever possible. The second thing was to invest early, often and consistently.
So kids, remember before you spend that allowance — you should save some for Father’s Day! After all, your dad gave you so much. Thanks for the lessons, dads!
