Jeff Rose describes himself as an entrepreneur disguised as a certified financial planner, author, and blogger. He's the founder of the well-known blog Good Financial Cents, a best-selling author, and a self-made millionaire.

But, surprisingly, Jeff said that out of high school, his life was heading down a dead-end street. After delaying too long to make a tuition payment, his school actually dropped him out of all his classes.

He said he vividly remembers begging teachers to allow him back in. And when he got back to the car from talking to those teachers, he found that he had a $75 parking ticket waiting for him. He was so broke that he couldn't even pay for the parking ticket.

He recalls being so angry that he decided to quit school. About a semester later, it finally dawned on him that his life was going nowhere fast. So he decided to join the Army National Guard. And that was a smart decision as it helped him develop the work ethic that led to all the successes that he's enjoyed later in life.

We discuss many of those successes in our interview. Check out the full show notes here.
