How often do you feel bored? So many of us are busy with work, family, and life that we forget to slow down. We don’t leave ourselves time to do nothing and to experience the magic that is being bored. Celeste Headlee was on a personal journey to find happiness when she started researching the history of work in America. What she found was a treadmill that we’re spinning faster and faster. She found that most of us don’t have time to do nothing, yet we need that time for reflection and rest. Celeste shares her findings and why doing nothing can be so important to achieving the goals you truly want in life.
During our headline segment, we take a look at investment fees. Eye roll, I know, but fees play an important role in our overall investment portfolios and can vary greatly. We talk about the fees you should and shouldn’t care about. We also answer Colton’s question about selling and buying a house. He wants to know how much to put down on the new house given recent interest rate rises. And don’t worry, we will leave time for Doug’s amazing trivia.
