Judge Alex Ferrer

Host of “Judge Alex,” former Florida Circuit Court judge

Fame & Fortune Q&A:
Bankrate: Has the difference in the pay been life-changing?
Judge Alex Ferrer: Yes, but it’s not life-changing for me, because I’m not the type of person who makes more money and then says, “See you, I’m going to go out and buy a bigger house.” It’s nice to be comfortable, it’s nice to not have to worry about financial issues, but I know this industry is fickle. I tend to save more than I spend or use it in ways that will have lasting value.

Lesson learned: 
Save more than you spend.
