Guest Dave Chilton

Let's get this out of the way: David Chilton was never a barber. The title of his best-selling book on personal finance, 'The Wealthy Barber', has led many people to ask if he used to give haircuts, but David's only concern is ensuring that Canadians don't take a financial haircut of their own. That concern led him to self-publish the original 'Wealthy Barber' - a book of practical financial advice aimed at the average Canadian - in 1989.

The book is long on tips for practical saving, and short on numbers and charts. Since then, it's sold over 2 million copies and has become one of the best-selling books in Canada over the past 50 years (second only to the Holy Bible). Not bad for a former stockbroker who grew up in Sarnia and wrote his bestseller longhand.

After becoming a household name. David traveled the world doing the lecture circuit, home schooled his kids, and along the way helped two culinary sisters publish some best-selling cookbooks, like 'Looneyspoons' and 'Eat, Shrink & Be Merry'.

And although his seminal book 'The Wealthy Barber' was a game-changer in the way it helped many people understand personal finance, David's watched with dismay as Canadians continue to take on more and more debt - unable to live within our means, caught in a global spending cycle. Those concerns led to a new book, 'The Wealthy Barber Returns', which offers David's take on money as it is now. But there are still no tips on cutting hair...
