Bankrate: How would you describe your investment style?
Steve Schirripa: I'm conservative. I'm not a stock guy; I've got mutual funds, and he (the broker) handles my 401(k), my retirement stuff. I'm not a big stock player. I learned my lesson a few years ago when I had no money, and everything is relative, right? A guy gives me a stock tip, I swear to God, I've got two grand to my name, he guarantees me this stuff is going to go through the roof, I invest $800 and I blow $700 of it, and that was the biggest lesson I learned.
Lesson learned: Don't roll the dice trying to make a big score.
