For millions of young prodigies, it’s graduation season. But before they spread their wings and leave the nest, how will they afford it? Our roundtable tackles this timely topic of how recent college graduates can best get a head start on adulting. We’re happy to welcome our special guest to said roundtable Wes Moss of the Retire Sooner Podcast. He joins our fabulous writer Paulette Perhach and our in-house CFP OG. They give their two cents on today’s headline article.
In part two of our discussion, each of our contributors gives his/her own expert two pieces of advice to new college graduates to set themselves on the right track in life (Doug adds his top tip, too). Plus, Doug has some jaw-dropping trivia about the cost of private college.
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at https://www.StackingBenjamins.com/201
