Has goal setting helped your quality-of-life? Today we review a recent blog post where the author decides that goals have possibly ruined much of his life. Today our round table contributors will dive into this post from blogger Alex West, and talk about measurement of goals, a horizon that always seems to be unreachable, the randomness of progress, and more.
After our discussion on goals (or the lack thereof), we’ll shift gears to speak with Pam Andrews from The Scholarship Shark. How can you help someone not only get into the school of their dreams but help them get it paid for with scholarships? We’ll discuss the problems students face, the important aspects to think about when targetting scholarships AND we’re also thrilled to announce our brand-spanking-new partnership with Pam. Looking for more after our discussion? You can find out more at: StackingBenjamins.com/scholarships.
We’ll round out our show by sharing the results of a timely and special poll. A few weeks ago we asked our friends on social media what their best “investment” has been so far during this unprecedented quarantine. During today’s MagnifyMoney question we’ll ask our contributors to answer this same question and we’ll also share some of the answers Twitter shared with us.
One last thing… we’ll always save some time for Doug’s trivia.
