Better Money Decisions

You’ve probably started with great intentions, telling yourself you’ll stash away more for retirement and buy fewer lattes (because some writer said buying lattes is a bad thing). But life happens. It’s not as neat and tidy as the financial experts on TV seem to think. You’ve got a lot going on in your life, and you need more than simplistic, cookie-cutter instructions to keep you on the right financial path. Kate Stalter escorts you to the right path for your money. She talks to experts and "normal" people who have taken the right steps to make better money decisions.

The guest on today's show is Marc Miller, founder of Career Pivot, a company that helps people to move forward into a new career in small practical steps, landing them where they want to be. Mark has had an interesting career journey. He left his position at IBM in 2000, after working there for twenty two years and then had various thriving tech startups. He subsequently had what he describes as a painful stint as a high school teacher and also did a gig, raising funds for the Jewish Community Association of Austin- as a non-Jew. Later, he had a near fatal bicycle accident, which changed his perspective forever.
