If you didn’t grow up in a wealthy household, you and I probably have plenty in common. My dad was a mechanic, and my mom worked part-time at a retail store, earning slightly more than the minimum wage. As one of four children, my parents expected me to pay for my own college education. Perhaps I developed an early respect for money because I never had any, while growing up. And when I was 19, I met a mechanic who happened to be a millionaire.
