When college looked unaffordable for Jocelyn Paonita, she sprang into action and raised over $120,000 in scholarships. How did she score so much money? What was her system? We’ll discuss all of that on today’s show. Whether you have a child headed to college, in school, in college yourself, or just looking for a story about someone taking massive action to solve their problem.
We’ll also throw out the Haven Life Line to Trey. He’s buying a house and is worried about the recent credit hack. Should he freeze his credit, only to open it again nearly immediately? Plus we’ll answer a letter from Michelle, who wonders how to set and prioritize goals.
