For example, one question workers at Disney theme parks are often asked is “What time is the 3 o’clock parade?” Which is, of course, a pretty stupid question on its surface.

Yet, a lot of very smart people do some amazingly dumb things with their money according to Jill Schlesinger, business analyst for CBS News, host of the podcast Jill on Money and author of the book, The Dumb Things Smart People Do With Their Money Listen as Jill explains what to do now to avoid the consequences of stupid money mistakes.  We’ve all been told that our attitude is important.
