This is a wonderful article which I came upon and I thought of sharing with everyone. Original article at: http://www.investopedia.com/financial-edge/0612/Investopedia-Staffs-Fatherly-Financial-Advice.aspx#axzz1y4PLPi11 - CJH Since Father's Day is quickly approaching, we here at Investopedia wanted to honor our dads by sharing some stories about the best financial lessons our fathers taught us. We cover everything from budgeting to employment advice, and we will hopefully show you that your dad's advice - though it may have seemed curmudgeonly at the time - can help you out throughout your entire life. Feel free to share your own stories in the comments section. Each of these stories has been shared by an individual from the Investopedia Staff. Happy Father's Day!
