If you’re anything like us, you probably have a business idea or two that has been floating around in your head since the quarantine began. After all, what else is there to do between
Netflix, snacks, taking a nap, eating dinner, and going to sleep learning who knows how many practical new skills? While an idea is always step one, you won’t go very far without some practical knowledge. Today we’ll talk to entrepreneur Chris Krimitsos, the founder of PodFest, creator of The Messengers documentary, and overall business connector, to find out what it takes to get a new business rolling.
Plus, the financial crisis around coronavirus is hitting areas none of us had thought of, including firms like Merrill Lynch taking a step away from their adviser training program. We’ll talk about that fallout and what it means for advisory firms. Plus, in our second headline, how much cash should you be putting away each month to send your kid to college debt-free? We know most people are just trying to put food on the table, but graduation is right around the corner and for many kids, college is not that far away.
Later in the show, we’ll throw the Haven Life Line and shake out some time for Doug’s special trivia. Happy Earth Day, peeps! #Doug2020!
