Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - May 30, 2022 - 30:24

In honor of the Memorial Day holiday, we're giving you a break from the money talk, and instead re-airing an interview we did back in 2017 with retired Admiral William “Bill” McRaven. If Bill’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he presided over the 2011 Navy SEAL raid that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.A few years later in 2014, the four-star admiral and 37-year Navy SEAL veteran delivered the commencement speech at his alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin. Little did McRaven know that his address, which spoke to how students could overcome challenges and change themselves, would become a viral hit with more than 16 million views online.McRaven was eventually encouraged to expand his commencement speech into a book, Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World.Have a money question?
