Eccentricities and more… of a Millionaire Teacher
by andrew hallam · Published · Updated
I’m thrilled that The Globe and Mail has taken such an interest in my book, Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School.
Today, John Heinzl’s video clip, There’s No Feeling Like Being Debt Free, definitely showed my quirky side. Have a look. I think you’ll get a kick out of it.
Likewise, I’ve written a couple of recent articles for The Globe and Mail that have sparked some lively online posts. I stay out of the fray. When you check out the posts, Two Lessons On The Road to Being Wealthy and Could You Pass This Personal Finance Exam?, you’ll certainly see why.
Thanks again to Ian McGugan, John Heinzl and the staff at The Globe and Mail.
