Author of The Wealthy Barber Series & Judge on CBC's Dragons' Den
David Chilton's speeches aren't about just money: they're about believing in yourself, overcoming mistakes (many of his are truly hilarious) and, most importantly, they're about perspective—the missing ingredient in many people's financial lives. The sequel to The Wealthy Barber, entitled The Wealthy Barber Returns, offers expanded advice—twenty years worth—to a new generation of Canadians seeking strong, non-technical and reliable advice from the clever mind of David Chilton. Chilton is the opposite of the stereotypical dry financial expert: he's "charming, unpretentious and funny" says The Chicago Sun-Times.
The Wealthy Barber: The Common Sense Guide to Successful Financial Planning
David Chilton is an economics graduate. Despite that, he's actually a fun guy. In his talks, Chilton provides financial education in an entertaining and understandable format. He doesn't share new techniques, complex strategies, or get-rich-quick schemes. Instead, he focuses on the financial planning basics that, over time, have proven to be effective. It's primarily common sense that, unfortunately, in our society is not common knowledge. By using relatable stories and strong doses of humor, Chilton has taken the boredom out of the financial-education experience—and opened the personal-finance door to countless Canadians.
