One of the biggest questions that we all ask ourselves before undergoing a reinvention is “How will I afford it?” Having a financial plan will make it easier for you to focus on yourself and accomplish your reinvention with ease.
With that in mind, I am thrilled to have Jean Chatzky, financial editor of NBC News, on The LiftOff Project this week to discuss how learning to manage money and increase financial literacy is an integral part of your journey to reinvention.
Jean is a New York Times best-selling author of eight books, the latest of which is “Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security,” but reaching this level of success was not smooth sailing for her. When she first left college she decided to forgo a writing job to pursue a career in retail that offered a salary twice the size. After buying a car and moving to a different state for a job she didn’t love, Jean quickly learned the importance of following your passions.
Now, Jean’s mistake was a little bit easier to fix as a young woman with no assets, mortgage or children but her journey helped her create a game plan that anyone can follow to make their reinvention without risking your financial safety net.
