Ep. 33 The Truth about Income and Wealth – With Author, Investor David Parker

Listen to “Ep. 33 The Truth about Income and Wealth – With Author, Investor David Parker” on Spreaker.


Listen in as David and I discuss income and wealth and how your level of income does NOT determine your wealth. This means you can do what you love for your career and still achieve financial freedom. After reading this important new book, readers will have no doubt that “income” and “wealth” are entirely different things, and that any limits upon the first have no bearing upon one’s ability to achieve the second.

David Parker began his career in education at age 24 and served students of San Francisco’s inner-city public elementary schools for 40 years as a music teacher, followed by 10 years as a volunteer. While pursuing his career in education, Parker also became a very successful real estate investor. It was success in business that focused his writing, teaching and career as a professional musician. He spent 20 years as a member of the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra and 15 years as leader of the Dave Parker Sextet, which has headlined at San Francisco’s Fillmore Jazz Festival.

Parker shares the perspectives and principles on which he also built successful careers as an entrepreneur and investor in INCOME AND WEALTH: David Parker Essays — Volume One. The lessons that Parker shares with readers in this thought-provoking, transformational work encapsulate the author’s 40-year study of economic history and principles.

As “Income and Wealth” approached publication, Parker was already hard at work on his next book. His thoughtful essays have been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times and several prestigious law journals. In addition to being an author, entrepreneur and investor, David Parker is also a proud father and grandfather.
