An Interview with TMFLouis

Last updated: 10/31/2011
The Fool:
Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
There are so many. Probably not getting into so much credit card debt early on followed closely by getting into the rental business.
The Fool:
If you could be the CEO of any public company, which one and why?
I think it would be Google. Do you really have to ask why?
The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
Chobani Greek Style Yogurt. Good Stuff.
