Today I am interviewing Bill Perkins, the author of "Die With Zero". Bill is so wise in the approach that he takes going from hedge fund management, to writing his book, and too inspiring, you know, tens of thousands if not more in his practices, in his way of life and what you can do to implement these strategies in your own life.
