Mary Buffett learned first hand what it's like to be financially savvy from non other than her former father-in-law Warren Buffett.

Good Day NY sat down with the best-selling author and asked what financial tips she could share including some of that Buffett magic.

Buffett tackled the ongoing jobs crisis in America:

"A highly educated work force is one of the greatest things to an economy's GDP growth. We need trade schools. We need community colleges. We need schools that are affordable. We need people with real skills. That know how to run computers, robotics. I think there are jobs out there.  I think you need to be highly skilled," said Buffett.

What can we do on a day to day basis to make ourselves financially better?:

"I tell everyone that savings is critical. 10 percent of your gross income should be put aside for savings for investment. You're always looking and you're researching companies that have been around and will be around," said Buffett.

Buffett's latest book is 'Warren Buffett Stock Portfolio."
