Episode Summary

Paul Adams discusses financial philosophy on this episode. What would it mean to you to keep all your financial promises? So many people make promises to the people they love. They promise they'll get a bigger house. They promise they'll send their children to college. But few of them actually do the math to find out what it means to keep such promises. Listen in as Paul talks on why you might consider not purchasing that bigger home and being careful, or at least highly aware, of the promises you make to your loved ones.
