Chris Walla has a job many people dream of — he makes a living playing guitar for the popular band Death Cab for Cutie. But he was always a rock star, especially when it came to managing his money.

Walla tells Tess Vigeland about the finance mistakes he’s made, and what he’s learned about money over the years.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
