Following the announcement of their NPR partnership and the move of The Motley Fool Radio Show to NPR, Motley Fool Co-founders Tom and David Gardner spent an hour talking about the world of personal finance on Thursday's Talk of the Nation. Topics ranged from getting started in investing to the recent meltdown of Enron to the business of The Motley Fool itself.

In discussing personal finance and making sound financial decisions, Tom and David consistently talked about the need to have a plan. Without a plan, the chances of reaching your personal goals diminish significantly. Recently, Tom wrote about having a plan, and The Motley Fool has introduced TMF Money Advisor, a new service that offers independent, unbiased financial advice at an affordable price.
