It's nice to know that it sometimes pays off to try and help people with their finances.
About 2 years after I retired, a former co-worker emailed me and thanked me for helping her see the light about her finances. She had been in debt, had a lien on her property and was just a financial mess. She always shrugged her mess off by saying, 'oh well I'm not good with money'.
She finally realized she could change her habits and got out of debt, got the lien off her property and started saving and investing in her 401K. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear from her.
