Are there more pros or cons to retiring early? A new Investopedia piece says there are definitely more cons than pros. Does our roundtable team agree? We kick off today’s show by asking them, and man, are Paula, Greg and Colton opinionated! We don’t stop with a raucous discussion about retirement, though…we then ask the question, “Can you 1% your way to your goals?” Not sure what we’re referring to? We’ll explain. Finally, when it comes time for Halloween, how do you dress as a money nerd? We’ll ask for our roundtable team’s hard-hitting opinions.
In our Friday career segment, we talk to Kathryn Minshew, CEO of TheMuse.com and co-author of the New Rules of Work about personal branding. How do you ensure that you’re able to put your best foot forward online and offline? We’ll have details on today’s show!
