Have you ever wondered how your life might be different if you’d decided to take that gap year instead of attending college? Or maybe you decided at the last minute to change the course of your life by talking to a stranger? Laura Schroff backtracked into an unlikely meeting with an 11-year-old boy who was panhandling on the streets of New York City in the late 1980s. After initially walking by the starving child, something made her reverse course a few blocks later. That day turned into a lifelong friendship, creating lessons for both Laura and the boy (Maurice) over the years. She’s here today to share the powerful tale, as her book that describes the story–An Invisible Thread–celebrates its 10th anniversary.
AND as usual, we have more surprises…including a special guest co-host! BiggerPockets CEO and co-host of the BP Money Podcast Scott Trench joins in the fun. He helps us with our headline segment, which brings the conversation back to crypto but it’s probably not what you think. Some stars and athletes have asked to be paid in crypto. How’s that turning out for them? Joe and Scott dive into why it might not be the best idea. We’ll also discuss Tyrell’s question about non-compete agreements in our Haven Life line. And we can’t forget Doug. He’ll share his trivia.
