What do your fans mean to you?
My fans show that I have made a small dent in the big revenue generating Wall Street machine. It is not about me being famous. I wrote this book to help people become smarter with their financial situation.
What are you working on next?
I am giving some thought to a sequel. Meet Wally Street. The Reason You're Still Stupid.
