Preparing For Your Empty Nest With Matt Meline

Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast we bring you Matt Meline, father, founder and CEO of PrairieFire Wealth Planning. Today Matt and I talk about fatherhood, being in a blended family and about his new book entitled: Empty Nest, Full Pockets: How to Emotionally and Financially Prepare for Your Family’s Future.
