Do you focus on managing time or money? If you worry about every dollar, do you value your time similarly, spending moments carefully? While many of us know much we expect to save, spend, and invest each month, not as many of us know exactly where our time is going. In her new book, Time Smart, Harvard Global Health fellow Ashley Whillans explains where all your extra time is going, the two different approaches we take with time and work, and why it feels like we have less time in our day than ever before.
Think you don’t need a layer of separation between you and your money? After today’s headline, you might reconsider how much access you want to your cash. The short and sweet? Under NO circumstances should you cash out $400,000 for your partner’s flight school venture. (And maybe watch your checks). In our second headline, we’ll cover Kobe’s autographed court floor selling for over $600,000. While that’s an undeniable nice piece of history to show off to your friends, the average investor (or even a lot of investors who could be considered rich), probably shouldn’t even think about spending that kind of cash on a collectible.
Plus, during our Haven Life Line Steve from Arkansas has a thing or two to say about Bauxite. On a recent show Joe and OG dismissed Bauxite a little too quickly for Steve’s tastes, and he’s laying down some firsthand knowledge.
As always, we’ll save some time for Doug’s trivia.
