Dad-isms: Celebrating Father’s Day with CFO Simplified

Author: Larry Chester, President


Every family has their own set of dad-isms.  Some are passed on for generations.  Some we will never really know the original source of, but nonetheless, life wouldn’t be the same without them.

A few of ours include:

  • If you have one car in your family and you put 15,000 miles on it, when you buy a second car, you will put 15,000 miles on each of them.
  • The Chester Law of Family Finance – Your expenses rise to equal what your income is going to be next year.
  • Never ask anyone to co-sign your loans, and never co-sign anyone else’s loan.

But, the one that always comes to mind as a piece of advice I value from my father is….

Learn as much as you can in as many different subjects as you can because the job you’re going to have in 20 years doesn’t exist today.

In that spirit, we reached out to our team and our friends on the interweb to ask for their favorite Fatherly Advice.  Whether it was from their father or someone as important they came through with some excellent dad-isms.
