When BNN (Business News Network) reached out to us this week, asking me to on their morning show, I thought, “Oh BOY! Another opportunity to look stupid in front of a camera? Sign me up!”
Hey, what can I say? I love pain.
And this time they even brought a fancy-pants Portfolio Manager to poke holes in our “made up” story! Yikes!
So how did it go? Let’s watch…
A major part of BNN’s shtick involves bringing in talking heads to endlessly bash Millennials. So the fact that, in a later segment, they describe me as a “Millennial who’s self-aware, disciplined, and actually has a plan,” completely boggles my mind:
“Self-aware” and “disciplined” are words that have never ever been used to describe me.
