Description

Money makes the world go round – but how does it shape you as a person? Join comedian and former Facebook Sales VP Paul Ollinger as he extracts a wealth of wisdom from CEOs and celebrities, authors and artists, Olympic gold medalists and Nobel Prize winners – each with a unique perspective on the role that money plays in our lives. At a time when talking about personal finance can still feel taboo, Paul offers refreshingly honest discussions about the motivations and misconceptions surrounding money, ultimately asking: what are the ways in which it can (and can’t) bring us happiness? Crazy Money won’t make you rich. But it will definitely make you think (and laugh).
