Dwyane Wade Says This Was The Best Financial Advice He Ever Received

Retired NBA superstar Dwyane Wade has plenty of money now, but in a recent interview with Men's Health he says that he'd be "a lot richer today" if he'd been financially smarter when he first got drafted in 2003. And he went on to share what he calls the best piece of financial advice he ever got, per a CNBC story on the interview. That advice, as Wade shared it, had to do with his well-known penchant for collecting automobiles: he says he was advised by his financial advisor "[t]o get rid of about 16 cars." That included a Maybach that Wade says he never drove but that he was nevertheless paying about $6,000 a month just to have the privilege of owning. It may sound like simple advice, but he says he declined to follow it at first, but the wisdom of age has led him to eventually ge...

The 20 Highest Earning Podcasts

Nothing makes a long commute or a lonely lunch go by faster than popping some earbuds and firing up an episode of your favorite podcast. My top three favorite podcasts at the moment are: #1) "How Did This Get Made?" with Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas. They tell you a bad movie to watch one week in advance, then spend an hour making fun of said movie. It is glorious. I'm driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles tomorrow and will spend part of that drive listening to the Color Of Night episode. episode#2) WTF with Marc Maron. Marc is probably the best interviewer on the planet. He can conduct a fascinating discussion with anyone on any topic. I Highly recommend his Dave Grohl interview if you're looking for a place to start. And #3) NPR's Planet Money. Fun, topical s...

The Biggest Book Advances Of All Time

Salary The sad truth of the matter is that writing books is rarely a solid way to make a living, let alone a fortune. Sure, there are exceptions – JK Rowling and James Patterson come to mind – but most authors just don't make big advance money or much money from sales royalties. Now, if you're a famous person with a true story to tell, that changes things. When publishers buy a book from an author, the advance isn't free money –its value is a prediction of how well the publishers think a book might do. An advance is just that—an advance of the future royalties earned. If a book doesn't make as much as the advance is, the author could end up owing their publisher. With books written by public figures, politicians, and celebrities, the built-in audience and curiosity make publishers more...
