“My uncles always taught me how to have a savings account, ” James shares in a podcast on his web platform, UNINTERRUPTED. ” They would give me a dollar and say, ‘Listen, nephew. , spend 35 cents of it and keep the other 65 cents.’ Or, if they give me two dollars, they’ll say, ‘Go ahead, go party for a dollar, but save the dollar remaining.’”
