Taylor Fletcher, Nordic Combined Olympian joins us in the basement to talk the rough side of the Olympics….money. USSA (United States Ski Association) recently pulled their funding, making it a struggle for the team to continue to pursue their dream.
….not that it was easy BEFORE they pulled the funding.
Taylor talks about the “business” of chasing your Olympic dream, struggles with money, with training and with juggling a job and a sport you love. He also describes for us the Sochi Olympics and his favorite parts of competing.
I think you’re gonna love this interview.
AS IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH…..OG & Joe talk Roth IRAs and Millennials. Suzanne Lucas, the Evil HR Lady, answers the question: Can your boss cut your pay?; we take your letters, and much, much more.
