How’s your network of mentors, friends and coaches? Who can you reach out to for help when you really need something? On today’s show our roundtable contributors will tackle networking, and how to build a more effective surround sound for your life. We won’t talk “networking,” which can come across as dirty and slimy. We’ll tackle how to effectively and sincerely grow a network so that you’re more effective and also more of a help to other people. Our piece today says that your net worth is equal to your network, and we’ll ask our roundtable what that means for you.
Speaking of being happy…after our discussion on true friendship, wealth, and cold, hard business decisions – we’ll turn our attention to a new site called Happy Money in our Friday FinTech segment. We’ll give a break to our panel while Joe talks with the company’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Elizabeth Dunn, who’s a behavioral and happiness expert. How do you, as mom says, turn that money frown upside down? She’ll share details of what they’re working on.
Of course, we’ll also save time for Doug’s Friday game show trivia. It’s too bad Joe isn’t in the running for points – today’s Disney themed trivia would net him an easy win this week. Enjoy!
