Why are people struggling to make ends meet? Our roundtable gang today (joined by author of the new book Broke Millennial) kicks off the fun by examining why (according to a recent Washington Post piece), some families just can’t seem to save. We’ll then dive into worry….and the ways to stop worrying and start saving!
Like every roundtable….we won’t dwell on a single topic long, so next up on our Friday FinTech segment, we’ll talk to Brett Crosby, who’ll introduce us to PeerStreet, a new platform for investing in real estate.
We’ll then end the episode by talking about weird jobs. Trust me…if you’ve listened to the show for any length of time, you’ll be surprised by a few revelations on today’s show.
