In this special edition of Chatter That Matters, taped in front of a live audience, David Chilton talks about how long it took to write The Wealthy Barber and how it wasn’t an overnight success.
It took almost a year for the book to be discovered before it became one of the biggest-selling Canadian books of all time. The book’s success changed David’s path in life — he became a sought-after speaker at conferences worldwide, a venture capitalist, a publisher of cookbooks and one of the most popular Dragons during his time on “Dragons’ Den.”
The timing for this show couldn’t be better, given the current economy and inflation. One of Tony’s key takeaways from his chat with David is to have a Will, keep it updated, and never let a friend or family member be your executor. Why? You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out.
