Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

Apr 23, 2018

Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made my guest's eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. 

The daughter of a successful investor and bestselling financial author, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing - until she realized that her time-consuming career as lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. 

Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. 

Over the course of a year, my guest went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. 

Danielle Town is a corporate startup attorney with a law degree from New York University.

She cohosts the InvestEd podcast with her father, Phil Town, and together now they've written Invested: How Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Taught Me to Master My Mind, My Emotions, and My Money (with a Little Help from My Dad)

Here's my conversation with Danielle Town, author of Invested, in episode 323 of Informed Choice Radio.
