Sample Answer:
I always wanted to spend my money after my will but the recent discussion about spending money had changed my former concept. I had a fruitful discussion with Mr Robert, a senior professor in my college in Florida. He teaches economics at the graduate level and a man of letters. He believed that people should have money in the head, not in the heart. Money is only a tool. But it will not make the things done until someone uses it correctly. Overall, it was a pleasant discussion with him. This is a smart cue card task for me. I will answer the other questions gladly.       

Mr Robert was taking a class about spending and saving money. In fact, he owned some ideologies. He never spent money before having that. So, he was talking to the class about money management. After the class, I went meeting him and he explained everything to me. I wanted to justify the way I was spending money for myself. Mr Robert explained the issues one after another and I was simply impressed with the examples.  

After lots of arguments, I admitted that I made mistakes in money management. He advised me to never lose money. Actually, I used to spend unnecessarily. And I told him the matters to get some good suggestions. At the end, I got a different insight. I decided to cut my coat according to my clothes. And also pledged to be careful in future about money management.

The discussion attracted me most for its nature. I was unfamiliar with the ways of savings. And after the detail estimation, it was evident that I was in the wrong direction. Accordingly, I started following his advice and find everything right with me. Interestingly, I did the opposite things that Mr Robert suggested me this time.
