What You’ll Learn
4:36 Interview Begins
9:13 82% of Men…

12:37 Less Father, more Friend
David Delisle talks about the relationship he had with his father.
14:16 Top of Your Game
When you talk about doing what you love, regardless of any field, be it the stereotypical careers that make more money, doctors, attorneys, we forget that it’s not about the title, but about how good you are at what you do.
15:20 A lot of men Think this…
And a lot of us think that, well, in order for me to have that badge of nobility, then I should probably not really like what I do because otherwise I just feel like I’m cheating life in a way, if I love what I do, and I’m still able to put food on the table.
18:20 If you do not like what you do….
Some of us have the perception that we’re trapped and there’s no other way. And others of us have the perception of I’m going to do this for now, but also figure out what it is I’m gonna do later and there’s going to be a light at the end of the tunnel. And then there are some people just like, no! I’m not gonna be trapped.
21:00 Learn The Habits

22:59 Only Buy The Awesome Stuff
David Delisle explains the concept behind only buying the awesome stuff. The concept applies both to children learning about money and adults.
